How to Use the Food Bank

Must be enrolled in courses at John Jay
(recipients will be required to present proof of enrollment once per semester)

Each visit to the Food Bank requires a check-in at our front desk and a short interview with a Peer Educator. This interview determines your eligibility, the kinds of food you would like, and other necessary information. 

We order most of our food from the New York City Food Bank. Products offered depend on availability and current finances. We try to provide as much variety as possible, while allowing for cost limitations and providing students' basic nutritional needs.
