Food, rent and utilities are expensive. And, many New Yorkers struggle to feed their families. That’s why the Department of Probation has opened five NeON Nutrition Kitchens throughout the city. When you visit a NeON Nutrition Kitchen, you’ll get free, nutritious groceries and great service from our friendly staff.
Everyone is welcome
NeON Nutrition Kitchens are neighborhood food pantries that help people transitioning from the justice system to stay on the right track. But you don’t have to be on probation to come to a NeON Nutrition Kitchen. Everyone in the community is welcome.
Visit your NeON Nutrition Kitchen for:
- Free food (non-perishable)
- Healthy, great-tasting recipes
- Nutrition tips and guidance
- Monthly cooking demonstrations by local chefs
