West Side Campaign Against Hunger (WSCAH) is one of the largest and most successful food pantries in New York City. Last year they distributed over 1.5 million pounds—one-third of which was fresh fruits and vegetables—to more than 20,000 individuals via their supermarket-style food pantry and Mobile Market. In addition, they also provided a wide array of social services to bring families closer to self-sustainability. Last year they enrolled 586 families in SNAP (food stamps), 357 people in health insurance, referred 453 individuals to GED or ESL courses, and helped 196 individuals get jobs.
