SACSS is looking for energetic, motivated and dedicated volunteers eager to give back to the community! We operate the South Asian Food Pantry program on Fridays from 10:30am-2pm, where hundreds of families come to us to access free, healthy and nutritious food items. We provide specialized groceries commonly found in most South Asian households to make sure our clients receive the items they need and want. A typical food package may include bread, whole wheat flour (atta), milk, rice (white and brown), lentils, cereals, oatmeal, fresh fruits and vegetables, cooking spices and other items as they become available.

We are looking for dedicated volunteers who can help us with packing food items. We have multiple volunteer opportunities:
Shift 1: Thursdays 11am-1pm
Shift 2: Thursdays 2pm-5pm
Shift 3 Fridays 10:00am- 2pm

No prior experience necessary! Call us directly at 718-321-7929 for additional information.
