$10 helps us deliver a box of nutritious and delicious groceries to a family in need. Join our mission today.

Together, we can solve food insecurity in our lifetime.

Through June, we've delivered over 3.73 million nutritious groceries worth $16,355,678 to New Yorkers in need.

The Better Box from Wellfare is the first free food program in the country focused on premium, functional and nutritious packaged groceries. Each Better Box includes over $200 worth of low-sugar, low-salt and low-fat products like plant-based milk, nutrition bars, flavored seltzers and protein-packed pasta donated from Wellfare’s growing roster of brand partners. Alongside the goods are curated flyers with nutrition tips, wellness guides and coupons. Every month, enrolled families pick up their free Better Box from a convenient popup distribution outpost in the community — no long line required.


The Better Box is a more practical, efficient and dignified approach to nourishing food-insecure families, and is the first step in Wellfare’s fight against food insecurity.

Millions of Americans face barriers to accessing nutritious food everyday.

We're on a mission to change that.

What you're doing in the community, what you're bringing in is so important for us. I love the bars and the drinks. They're helping me feel strong again and I couldn't be more grateful.
