Description & History

Bed-Stuy Campaign Against Hunger (BSCAH) was unique amongst the food pantries in Brooklyn as the first "supermarket-style" pantry. Our pantry allows customers to select for themselves both fresh fruits and vegetables and nutritious food items from the pantry shelves. Taking a holistic approach to combating hunger, BSCAH also serves our clients through various social services including job training and education referrals, Food Stamps enrollment, cooking classes, summer camps, pre-HIV testing, diabetes and high blood pressure testing, and financial literacy classes. As the largest food pantry in Brooklyn, BSCAH offers a host of vital services to the over 11,000 clients we serve a month.
