We are seeking volunteers to help us sort and bag the food items we will be distributing food/grocery items to our community members at our Food Pantry. Food Insecurity is a high need in the Flushing Community, especially due to COVID-19, we currently distribute close to 10,000 lbs. of food or 500 families/individuals weekly.

To ensure the safety of volunteers and to follow the guidelines for maintaining social distancing, the building will be closed to the public while we work diligently to pre-bag the food we will be distributing.
