ORGANIZATION: New York Common Pantry

NYCP Logo
An uncommon solution to hunger

New York Common Pantry works toward the reduction of hunger and food insecurity through an array of programs that function to establish long-term independence for those we serve. Our whole-person approach starts with food provision through the distribution of nutritious, fresh food pantry packages in Choice Pantry and hearty balanced breakfast and dinner in the Hot Meals program.

New York Common Pantry is looking for volunteers to help serve hot meals to 150-200 food insecure individuals/families any day Monday-Friday from 10:00am-3:30pm, which is broken up into two shifts.

Please note that due to COVID-19 all volunteers must wear masks (we can supply) at all times. We have gloves hand sanitizer and the facilities are cleaned regularly. In an effort to minimize exposure all staff and volunteers are working on shifts. Volunteers must be 16 (with parental consent) plus.

2 Shifts

  • 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
    Volunteers will help prepare hot meals to the underserved in our community.
  • 12:30 PM to 03:30 PM
    Volunteers will help serve hot meals to the underserved in our community.
  • NONE OF THESE TIMES WORK FOR ME, BUT I CAN STILL HELP

About New York Common Pantry

Location:

8 East 109th Street, New York, NY 10029, US

Mission Statement

The New York Common Pantry is dedicated to reducing hunger throughout New York City while promoting dignity and self-sufficiency.

Description

New York Common Pantry works toward the reduction of hunger and food insecurity through an array of programs that function to establish long-term independence for those we serve. Our whole-person approach starts with food provision through the distribution of nutritious, fresh food pantry packages in Choice Pantry and hearty balanced breakfast and dinner in the Hot Meals program. Supplemental food is provided to seniors aged 60 and older through Nourish.

We then go further to address the reasons for food insecurity with case management services through the help of Help 365, which assists Pantry visitors in gaining access to resources, and Project Dignity, which connects homeless visitors to resources. The third vital element in our whole-person approach is education offered through our Live Healthy! program. Live Healthy! teaches children and adults about the importance of a nutritionally sound diet and active living, as well as provides them with the skills necessary to make healthier choices for their families.
