About Us

Plentiful was created by the NYC Food Assistance Collaborative to improve dignity and efficiency at food pantries.

Across the US, over 40 million people visit a charitable food program each year, often waiting in long lines for service. Plentiful eliminates lines, increases agency, and restores dignity to families in need, while providing better information for service providers.

Our founding members include City Harvest, United Way of NYC, NYC Human Resources Administration, the NYC Mayor’s Office of Food Policy, New York State Health Department, and Redstone Strategy Group.
