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 8:15 AM-12:00 PM, one weekday and one Saturday a month.
Volunteers will be able to complete an orientation online for this opportunity! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details on how to get involved!

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 is New York City’s largest food rescue organization, helping to feed the nearly 1.2 million New Yorkers who are struggling to put meals on their tables. We will rescue more than 80 million pounds of food this year and deliver it, free of charge, to hundreds of food pantries, soup kitchens, and other community partners across the five boroughs. Our programs empower individuals through nutrition education, increase our partners’ capacity, and strengthen the local food system, helping New Yorkers who are experiencing food insecurity to access, afford, and consume nutritious food.
