WHAT WE DO
food solutions for all!
E Joy Community Resource Center, Inc. (CRC) has been servicing the needs of Long Island and New York residents for over 10 years, assisting those who need “a hand up, and not a hand down” by providing basic needs with no conditions. Our goal is to provide healthy and nutritious food to people including fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains, and dairy. Our food pantry distributes over 2000 pounds of food per month. During the winter months, we distribute coats and Thanksgiving turkey baskets, and have holiday parties for children. In addition to feeding the hungry, E Joy CRC is in partnership with the Town of North Hempstead’s Project Independence which provides recreation for elderly adults.LEARN MORE ABOUT US

E Joy has been a blessing for me and my family. Since the pandemic has started, money has been slow. Thankfully, E Joy helps support my family when it comes to groceries and food.
E Joy is amazing and so is Audrey, my family and I were in desperate need of food. With school around the corner, I was barely able to buy the required school material for my children. Not only was E Joy able to put food on the table, Audrey made sure that both my kids recieved backpacks full of the school supplies they needed.
When you need food, E Joy is the place to go. Everyone is friendly and helpful, and there are a variety of food selections to choose from.
