Wyandanch Food Share

The Wyandanch Food Share, which occurs every Saturday at noon, is our newest distribution location. Located in the tiny parking lot across the street from the Martin L King Jr. Health Center ( at 6 16th street in Wyandanch, NY) the Wyandanch Food Shares offers free produce, and vegetarian groceries to anyone in need. No paperwork or identification is required. 

Like at all our locations, Community Solidarity focuses on sharing fresh produce at our Wyandanch Food Share. Wyandanch is an area that can be called a "food desert" meaning that it's an area that lacks access to healthier nutritious foods. It's an area where fast foods, or processed foods, are much easier to attain than their healthier alternatives. This lack of nutrition increases a plethora of health problems from heart disease, to diabetes, to ADHD, and even cancer. 

Sharing nutritious foods is sharing health, and that's paramount to our mission in Wyandanch.     

As with all Community Solidarity Food Shares, all people are welcome to come for groceries or to volunteer. No paperwork or documentation required. Food is a right, for all people. 


How do I get food?

As with all Community Solidarity Food Shares you just need to show up. No documentation or paperwork is required, just your respect for the community. Simply stated, bring a few bags and we'll fill them up. 

The Community Solidarity Wyandanch Food Share happens every Saturday at Noon and is located in the tiny parking lot at 6 16th street in Wyandanch, NY.  The Wyandanch Food Share happens every Saturday regardless of holidays or the weather. Through hurricanes, blizzards and countless rainy afternoons, we've never missed a single Saturday. We'll always be there if you need groceries or clothing.  

We strongly encourage volunteers to get to this Food Share at 11:50 am to help set up the distribution which starts up at noon. If you're just coming for groceries we recommend that you come closer to Noon. since there is no benefit in arriving early.  

We only distribute vegetarian groceries. Focusing on organic produce, whole-grain bread, and healthier non-perishable items, our aim is to promote a more nutritious and compassionate diet for all who come. You'll get most, if not all, of the groceries they need for their week.
