How to Apply to our Food Bank

Food Bank Application button
Students must be enrolled part-time at John Jay College in order to be eligible.
(recipients will be required to present proof of enrollment once per semester)

After filling out an application, each student will be called in for an interview with a Peer Educator, which will determine the student's eligibility, the kinds of food the student would like, and other necessary information. Each visit to the Food Bank requires a check-in at our front desk. Visits are strictly once a week.

We order most of our food from the New York City Food Bank. Products offered in our pantry 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.


Additionally, you may be eligible for emergency food vouchers. Click here to learn more and apply for food vouchers.
