Neighbors Being Human

Neighbors Being Human is the community mission of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Yaphank, NY. Our goal is to provide support to those facing food insecurity and homelessness and to ultimately help lift people out of poverty.

We are funded both by a grant from the Episcopal Ministries of Long Island and support from private citizens like you.

We reach the community in two ways:

  • Food Pantry and Clothing/Household Items Pantry:
    Located on the grounds of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church (see map and operating hours below).

  • Blessing Boxes:
    These mini-pantries are regularly stocked with food items and basic necessities which are available 24 hours a day.

For the latest information and news, please follow us:

We have an opportunity to get you vaccinated with the one shot J&J vaccine on May 6 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. You can make an appointment by emailing us at or just walk up during the above time and date.
