Our Pride Pantry, located at our Bed-Stuy facility (1360 Fulton Street), offers hygiene and other essential items to members of our community facing homelessness and housing insecurity. Please see below for our list of needs or visit our Amazon Wish List.

Our Needs

Urgent/Most Needed:

  • Shampoo, conditioner, cleansing conditioner/co-wash, leave-in conditioner, curl creme, styling gel, oil treatments, hair masks, hair spray, etc. designed for black and/or textured hair

  • New/unused underwear and socks

  • New/unused cold weather items (gloves, scarves, hats)

  • Granola bars, trail mix, snack packs, cereal, etc

  • Shelf-stable applesauce/pudding/jello cups

  • Other shelf-stable ingredients (dried rice, beans, pasta, etc.) are needed, but not nearly as much as ready-to-eat products
