City Harvest supports a network of over 400 agencies across the five boroughs. Many of our community food programs have been forced to shut down due to the COVID-19 crisis, often because of a lack of volunteer or staff. At the same time, our community food programs that are operating have reported an increased need for food and resources as more New Yorkers are seeking out additional food for themselves and their families. City Harvest is working to provide our agencies with more volunteer resources so that we can continue to feed our fellow New Yorkers during this time.
Volunteers at Agency Network Support shifts will assist with pantry organization, accepting deliveries, pre-bagging food items, distribution, line management, translation and more. Tasks will vary based on specific agency needs.
We are partnering with 3 agencies on Staten Island that are in high need of additional volunteer support. Weekday and Saturday shifts are available and range from 3 - 5 hours long.
New volunteers are asked to complete an online orientation and agree to City Harvest's policies before participating.

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 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.
