Food Pantry or Soup Kitchen Volunteer - adults 55+ only

Save to Favorites

Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)/CSSNYC

Want to make a difference?

Want to help hungry New Yorkers down on their luck and in need of something to eat? Look no further as RSVP partners with a number of food pantries and soup kitchens that fight hunger across the five boroughs. Whether you want to serve on the front lines or behind-the-scenes, inquire today!

At food pantries, depending on the organization, volunteers may be responsible for conducting pantry intakes, stocking and organizing shelves, inventorying, and/or packing and distributing goods.

At soup kitchens, depending on the organization, volunteers may be responsible for setting tables, preparing meals, serving meals, cleaning up, and/or (at some programs) benefits counseling.

While many assignments may require helpers to be on their feet for relatively long periods, there may be less physically demanding assignments available--it does not hurt to ask!

Guess what?! There are even more great opportunities for volunteers 55 and older in all 5 boroughs!

RSVP works with over 250 other partner organizations as well. If this opportunity is not for you, we can help you find another that is. Attend one of our Learn and Link events or schedule a placement interview today!

**Please note: all RSVP volunteer opportunities are for individuals 55 and older; also, most assignments are with our partners located across the City**
