COPO's Emergency Food Assistance Program that helps supplement the diets of people with low income by providing them with emergency food assistance at no cost.
HALAL FOOD PANTRY PROGRAM
COPO operates a "client choice" Food Pantry that distributes over 360,000 pounds of food per year to low-income households who come to us from throughout New York City. As one of only three food pantries citywide that guarantees compliance with Islamic dietary guidelines, our program fills a distinct need and serves families from across Brooklyn and as far away as Staten Island, Queens, and Manhattan.
HALAL MEALS-ON-WHEELS PROGRAM
COPO operates the only registered Halal Meals on Wheels (HMOW) program in New York City. This program currently provides food delivery twice a week to low -income Muslim Older Adults living in Brooklyn. It meets the increasing need for Meals on Wheels (MOW) services that are culturally and religiously sensitive. This service is only available for Older Adults over the age of 60. If you are interested in receiving this service, please reach out to our

MOBILE HALAL FOOD PANTRY PROGRAM
COPO’s Mobile Halal Food Pantry Program is targeted to address hunger in underserved locations, where there are gaps in services in the emergency food network, high employment rates, insufficient access to food pantries, etc. We visit three separate locations each month (Flatbush weekly, Coney Island Monthly, and Prospect Lefferts Gardens bi-weekly). The goal is to not only provide food security, but nutrition security as well. Most of the items distributed are fresh produce.
