Community Solidarity has multiple locations across Long Island & NYC that share free vegetarian groceries and other necessities on a weekly basis. We call these happenings "Food Shares".
At these Food Shares, anyone in need can get most, if not all, of the groceries needed for their week. Each Food Share is a free supermarket where community members share instead of pay for what they need. The best part is that everyone is invited to participate! There are no prerequisites, there is no paperwork, all are welcome and everyone will be helped.
So if you need food, we'll help you and if you'd like to help share we invite you to participate - click here to signup & volunteer.
If you have vegetarian groceries, vegan prepared foods, clothing, books, toys or other items that can be of use to your neighbors, that you'd like to donate, please bring them down to any of our Food Share locations listed below. For ideas on what you could share or what is needed *click here*. Also if you'd prefer us to pick up stuff, either from your house or another convenient location, we do that as well.
All the groceries at our Food Shares are completely vegetarian and all of the prepared food we distribute is 100% vegan. We believe that Food is a Right, Not a Privilege! Especially healthy foods, and because of this belief, we try to ensure that a majority of the food at our Food Share is nutritious, organic and compassionate.
Please note. Our various weekly Food Shares are all outdoors and occur throughout the year regardless of the weather so dress appropriately. Blizzards, hurricanes, rain, and snow doesn't stop us; we'll always be there for you at our listed locations and times. We also operate on all holidays.
If you're coming with a vehicle, we ask that you observe our parking guidelines listed for each share.
