Pop-up Pantry

Our Mission

​​​The Prodigal Center's Mission is to simply find the need and fill the need! There are many social issues in the South Bronx communities.  And we want to be a part of the solution by helping meet those needs throughout the year.

The Prodigal Center is targeting two south Bronx communities: Hunts Point and West Farms.  Both communities are seemingly struggling with issues like: community development, basic needs not being met, housing and more.

We want to continue to find these needs and fill them as much as we possibly can to help those who are struggling on a daily basis.

​The Prodigal Center is also providing volunteer opportunities, raising awareness of issues, raising funds and gift-in-kind resources to help meet the need.

For example, one of our short-term goals is to start a mobile pantry.

​You can be a part by partnering with us to help us, help others.

The Prodigal Center is a charitable,

not-for-profit 501 (c) (3) organization and all your financial donations are tax-deductible.
