There are many ways to support NYCP all year!
One of the easiest ways to volunteer is to make sandwiches during times when our kitchen is closed.
- Sandwiches can be any kind, but must be sealed individually (preferably in zip-lock bags).
- We can generally accept 1-200 sandwiches.
- Health and food safety standards require those preparing sandwiches wear gloves and hats or hairnets.
Please drop off sandwiches at the Help 365 service window during these times:
- Thursday, Friday, or Saturday: 9am – 6pm
- Sunday: 2pm – 6pm
Organize a School or Company Food Drive
NYCP distributes food to hungry New Yorkers all year long. Your school, company, or religious organization can help by collecting food on a monthly basis. Below are suggested themes for monthly collections:
