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.
City Harvest is in high need of volunteers that have proficiency in East Asian (Mandarin and Korean), South Asian (Bengali, Punjabi, Hindi), and Southeast Asian (Tagalog) at our Queensbridge, Bed-Stuy, and Stapleton Mobile Markets!
Mobile Markets are farmer's market style distribution of produce at our Healthy Neighborhoods locations. Volunteers will be stationed at 3-4 market tables, each supplied with thousands of pounds of fresh produce that they will help distribute to eligible market-goers. Sample produce items may include bananas, onions, cabbage, or potatoes. As the market-goers stop by each table, volunteers greet them-and then weigh and bag the produce. All food is distributed free of charge.
First time volunteers will not need to attend an orientation for this special, high need project! Interested volunteers should respond to this post to be registered for the next available market.

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. To learn more about food rescue, Healthy Neighborhoods and fighting hunger in New York City, visit cityharvest.org.
We'll work with your schedule.
