Take Care

As of June 27th, deliveries through the GetFood and Take Care program have ended.

For the Emergency Food Assistance Program (EFAB), please call 311 or visit https://access.nyc.gov/programs/emergency-food-assistance/ to learn more about enrolling and/or where to find local food pantries.

For assistance with COVID-19 treatments, vaccination appointments, and resources for Long COVID (Aftercare), please call 212-COVID-19 (212-268-4319).

The NYC Test & Trace Corps works to make sure that anyone who tests positive for or is exposed to COVID-19 has the resources they need to stay home and safely separate from others to help prevent the spread of the virus.

Safely Separate at Home

To learn more about how to safely separate at home, visit the Quarantining and Isolating section of the NYC Test & Trace Corps COVID-19 Resources page.

In addition, Take Care’s resource navigators can provide assistance to help you safely separate. Call the NYC Test & Trace Corps Hotline at 212-540-6923. Resource navigators are available to assist you Monday to Thursday, 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. and Friday, Saturday, Sunday and holidays, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Outside these hours, you can leave a voicemail and someone will call you back.
