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.
