Recruiting Organization: TOUCH-Together Our Unity Can Heal

In 2021, our Food Recovery Program saved over 1 MILLION pounds of consumable food that would otherwise have gone into landfills-- feeding those in need and benefitting our environment. This year we hope to increase that with YOUR help.

Contribute to feeding the hungry and those with chronic illness by helping us pick up consumable food from area stores and restaurants by taking on a regular route, picking up food, loading it into your vehicle, and helping unload and stock it back at our food pantry. Monday and Tuesday mornings are a particular need. Also helpers are needed to sort produce at stores daily.

Depending on the store/restaurant destination (in Rockland County) time commitment could be as little as one hour weekly, up to several hours weekly.

If you would like to pick up food donations from stores or restaurants, you should have your own vehicle, a clean driver's license..

Sorters are needed daily at various stores to sort out food donations, removing food not consumable for humans.

We hold weekly mass food distributions Thursday mornings, and need people to help set up pallets and load food pantry vehicles.
