About

Two Bridges is looking for volunteers to work with us and provide support for our seasonal Fresh Food Box Program that we run in collaboration with GrowNYC. Greenmarket Co., GrowNYC’s local food aggregation and distribution program, powers innovative programs that make fresh and healthy local food accessible to underserved families and communities. The Fresh Food Box program allows individuals to purchase mixed boxes of affordable, seasonal produce from local farms on a week-to-week basis and pick them up at a community distribution point, providing the convenience and quality of a CSA without the season-long commitment.

Volunteers are needed every Thursday from 3PM-7PM (hours can be flexible if you can't stay the entire duration) to help with set up, distribution and clean up. The program is scheduled to run from July-November. We'll work with you if you can't commit to the entire 5 months!
