NY Common Pantry was honored to welcome a visit on July 2, 2013 by Guillaume Garot, France’s Minister of State for the Agrifood Sector, along with Bertrand Lortholary, Consul General of France in New York City, and other guests who toured the Pantry to learn about our programs and the people we serve.

We were proud to help them learn about our Choice Pantry system, food rescue efforts, and other programs that work to reduce hunger and promote dignity and self-sufficiency for residents of New York City.
