We are excited to be launching a new expansion of our pantry offerings at the Community Kitchen and Pantry, opening up our pantry on Saturdays to ensure more of our clients who work or attend school during the week can access the resources they need for their families.

Volunteers assist families as they shop, check out and bag groceries, and restock shelves at our choice-style food pantry that provides more than 40,000 meals a month.

While we have a shared locker, please leave all valuables at home.

Dress Code:

  • Closed-toed shoes and shirts with sleeves are REQUIRED. No tank tops. Short or long sleeves only.
    • For groups of volunteers, we recommend you wear a team color or your corporate t-shirts.
  • Long pants or skirts at or below the knee required.
  • NO Short-shorts.

Description

Founded in 1983, Food Bank For New York City operates the country's largest food bank, providing community food programs throughout the five boroughs of New York City with food, related products and support services. Today we distribute more than 51 million pounds of food every year to over 1,200 community-based programs that serve free meals to the City's hungry. These programs include soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, senior centers, low-income day care centers and other nonprofit programs that reach out to people in need of food. Operating out of our Bronx-based warehouse Food Bank For New York City collects, inspects, and distributes millions of pounds of food. Food Bank For New York City also provides support services to the City's emergency food providers by hosting nutrition and food safety workshops, networking sessions and other education initiatives. We use our central role in the City's anti-hunger effort to provide legislators, advocates and the media with information about hunger in the City so that they may formulate effective policy and heighten public awareness of this important issue. Food Bank For New York City is a certified member of the Second Harvest National Food Bank Network.
