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 neighborhood 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 bag the produce. All food is distributed free of charge.

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 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.
