We meet every Tuesday evening from 5-8pm! Sign up on MeetUp to join in the fun!

One in five NYC children experiences hunger each month. Lemontree was founded to help solve this problem - we sell meal kits for $2 per meal and distribute them in neighborhoods where our service is needed the most.

Lemontree meal packing operations are entirely volunteer-powered! No cooking or experience of any kind is required. You'll just help us sort and package fresh meat and veggies. The groceries you pack will be on a family's dinner table tomorrow!

Our volunteer pack night takes place every Tuesday from 5-8pm in Industry City, Brooklyn. The next pack night is on Tuesday October 22nd and is a fulfilling and easy way to give back to the local community while meeting new friends. Feel free to bring a +1!

Space is limited so let us know you're joining by signing up on our MeetUp Group:

Interested in scheduling a group volunteer day for colleagues, friends or family? We'd love to help schedule your volunteer day. We provide everything you need to plan a great day of service. Send us an email at volunteers@lemontreefoods.org for more info.
