Food Pantry Volunteer (Friday Prep Day)

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: CABRINI IMMIGRANT SERVICES OF NEW YORK CITY INC

  • 1 person is interested

We are seeking volunteers to join our Food pantry team!

On Fridays (Delivery/Prep day) we have three shifts.

Between 8 AM - 10:30 PM, we receive deliveries for our food pantry. We need volunteers who are able to assist in lifting boxes and produce, stocking shelves, bagging food. Volunteers for this shift must be able to lift up to 50 lbs. Between 10:30-12 PM, volunteers will bag bread, meat, and occasionally produce. This will not require heavy lifting. From 3-5 PM, we prepare bags for distribution. Volunteers form an assembly line and fill bags with food items that we will distribute the next day.


Our History:
Cabrini Immigrant Services Food Pantry relocated from the Lower East Side to the Upper West Side in April of 2022. We are very proud to have served the Chinatown community faithfully for twenty years. By the end, we were providing approximately thirty pounds of healthy food (half the bag was comprised of fresh produce and frozen meat) to approximately a thousand clients every month.

We are starting over on the Upper West Side to serve the Inwood and Washington Heights community. This area is one of the most food insecure regions of New York City. There is a great need here, and the Cabrini Immigrant Services Food Pantry needs a lot of help to get back to where we were--and even expand.
