During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
When City Harvest was founded in 1982, it was run entirely by volunteers who connected a handful of neighborhood restaurants to food programs serving those in need.
Now, more than 30 years later, City Harvest volunteers remain a critical part of our food rescue operations and our comprehensive Healthy Neighborhoods programming. Whether you are a member of your company’s volunteer team at Mobile Markets, teach one of our nutrition education courses, or help with mailings and data entry in the office - your time and passion are important resources in the fight against hunger.
We offer a wide variety of individual and group volunteer opportunities - including our Nutrition Education Program, Mobile Markets, Greenmarket Rescues, Corporate Repacks, Office Projects, and Food Drives.
If you haven't volunteered with us before, please sign up for one of our New Volunteer Orientations held bi-monthly at our NYC office.

City Harvest exists to end hunger in communities throughout NYC. We do this through food rescue and distribution, education and other practical, innovative solutions.
City Harvest pioneered food rescue in 1982 and, this year, will collect 55 million pounds of excess food to help feed the nearly 1.4 million New Yorkers struggling to put meals on their tables. Through relationships with farms, grocers, restaurants, and manufacturers, City Harvest collects nutritious food that would otherwise go to waste and delivers it free of charge to 500 soup kitchens, food pantries and other community food programs across the five boroughs. In addition to helping meet the immediate need for food, City Harvest developed long-term Healthy Neighborhoods programs which partner with low-income communities to increase access to fresh produce and help residents shop for and cook nutritious, budget-conscious meals.

We'll work with your schedule.
