A catastrophic fire broke out on Tuesday morning (Aug. 24th), destroying the headquarters of NOSH and the North Shore Soup Kitchen. Our food pantry had operated out of the building since April, and serves over 600 families on the North Shore each week.

Please support NOSH in finding a new home, and replacing all of our equipment, including 23 refrigerators and freezers.


On March 15th a group of concerned North Shore neighbors launched NOSH.  Their goal, to safely deliver meals to the homes of families in need of food assistance due to the impact of COVID-19. As of the end of June, NOSH has become a program of the North Shore Soup Kitchen, joining forces to better meet the growing need in our community.  


Weekly, volunteers deliver 360 “NOSH Bags” to homes in Bayville, Glen Cove, Glen Head, Lattingtown, Locust Valley and Sea Cliff. NOSH Bags are emergency meal kits containing the ingredients to prepare two meals for a family of four.  Larger families receive additional NOSH Bags.  Nosh’s volunteer dietician assesses bag contents to make sure the ingredients provide proper, balanced nutrition for children and adults.
