Hunger Free America has compiled comprehensive Guides to free food programs in thirteen different areas within the five boroughs. Guides contain information on how and where to access the federal Food Stamp Program, the WIC Program (Women, Infants and Children), school and summer meals, senior meals and other free assistance resources. Each provides a map showing the locations of an area Food Stamp Office and WIC site, as well as area soup kitchens and food pantries.
