We are seeking volunteers to join our Food pantry distribution team!
On Saturday from 7:00-9:00 AM, the Cabrini Immigrant Services Pantry (in collaboration with Church of the Good Shepherd) distributes food to the Inwood/Washington Heights Community. Our packages include bread, fresh produce, frozen meat, and shelf-stable items.
At around 7 AM, the earliest volunteers arrive to help with set up. At 7:15, we are ready to begin distributions.
Some of the tasks that we need help with
1) Carrying bags of food,
2) Handing out bags to clients,
3) Helping with intake (must speak Spanish)
4) Providing crowd-control (must speak Spanish)
5) Creating more bags as necessary
6) Putting away equipment at the end of our distribution.
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.
Partnering with Church of the Good Shepherd, we have started over on the Upper West Side to serve the Inwood and Washington Heights community. 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. We are currently serving about three hundred families each week with an eye to do more. Please contact us to be a part of our mission to serve our neighbors.
