Street Pantry: From Soup to Works

Posted on 07/20/2010 at 9:49 am

Innovation has always been a hallmark of Bailey House’s programming.  With the unveiling of Street Pantry: from Soup to Works, Bailey House is beginning a ground-breaking Food Pantry outreach initiative in collaboration with Citiwide Harm Reduction.  

Street Pantry will provide the soup: nutritious food, personal hygiene kits, educational materials and safer-sex kits, and the works: healthcare referrals, housing placement assistance and substance use pre-treatment services to those who have been previously unconnected with vital resources needed to maintain a healthier lifestyle. 

Traveling to New York’s most vulnerable areas, Bailey House provides Street Pantry bags to individuals that have not gained access to healthy food and healthcare assistance, allowing Street Pantry to act as a gateway program that will lead many in need to Bailey House’s supportive housing and community services.
