What initially started as a community-based, collective effort for the LGBTQ community of Queens has organically grown into a larger movement to address food insecurity among all of our neighbors, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or immigration status.   

Love Wins Food Pantry is operated by a diverse group of volunteers. We rely on the generous support of donors and partners to provide fresh vegetables and non-perishable items to all of our neighbors in Queens. 

We pride ourselves in creating in a safe space for LGBTQ and gender non-confirming people especially, but we eagerly help anyone who needs it during these difficult times.   Not everyone is comfortable going to a church-based food pantry, so we operate out of a LGBTQ bar, Friends Tavern.

Please donate and help feed our neighbors.
