Healthy Neighborhood Residents

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.

Our two Mobile Markets on the North Shore of Staten Island are in high need of volunteers! Mobile Markets are bi-monthly farmer’s market style distribution of fresh produce to residents of our Healthy Neighborhoods. As a volunteer, you will help distribute thousands of pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables to over 400 families. Mobile Markets are a great opportunity to directly interact with the communities that City Harvest serves!

The Stapleton and Mariner’s Harbor Mobile Markets take place from 8:45 AM-12:00 PM, one weekday and one Saturday a month.

Volunteers will be able to complete an orientation online for this opportunity! Email volunteerservices@cityharvest.org for details on how to get involved!

Mission Statement

City Harvest exists to end hunger in communities throughout NYC. We do this through food rescue and distribution, education and other practical, innovative solutions.

Description

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.
