Food Rescuer and/or Deliverer - adults 55+ only

Save to Favorites

Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)/CSSNYC

Want to make a difference?

Are you a proponent of food security? Are you interested in spending time in your neighborhood and/or perhaps exploring somewhere new? If you answered yes to any of the above, one of the following may be the role for you:

Consider delivering meals to homebound individuals if you have an hour or two once-a-week or even just once-in-awhile. Routes are varied and can be arranged in proximity to your home or place of employment. Outside of some assignments on Staten Island, most volunteers in this role complete deliveries on foot.


Consider combating food waste by helping to pick up leftovers from businesses and restaurants and bringing them to nearby, predesignated shelters and soup kitchens. This opportunity offers flexible scheduling and remote staff support during "rescues," which are mostly on foot. Operations currently exist in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens.

Guess what?! There are even more great opportunities for volunteers 55 and older in all 5 boroughs!

RSVP works with over 250 other partner organizations as well. If this opportunity is not for you, we can help you find another that is. Attend one of our Learn and Link events or schedule a placement interview today!

**Please note: all RSVP volunteer opportunities are for individuals 55 and older; also, most assignments are with our partners located across the City**
