About Us

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

Plentiful aims to make it easy to get what you need when access to food is limited or uncertain. Our technology platforms cut pantry wait times with reservation systems, connect people to food providers nearby, and help people get the kinds of food they need and want.

Since 2016, Plentiful has provided a reservation system for 576 pantries across New York City boroughs connecting more than 1.2 million unique users to available food by facilitating over 7 million visits across New York City.

Plentiful was founded by City Harvest, United Way of New York City, NYC Human Resources Administration, the NYC Mayor’s Office of Food Policy, and the New York State Health Department.
