Thank you for your interest in volunteering! Volunteers are an integral part of the efficiency and effectiveness of New York Common Pantry’s programs. Without our dedicated volunteers, we would not be able to meet the great demand of our food-insecure neighbors.

Volunteering in our programs is great for individuals looking to give back to their community and groups looking to combine team building with community service. The calendar below lists availability in our Choice Pantry, Hot Meal and Nourish Programs.

Choice Pantry volunteers help to provide free grocery packages for food-insecure families.

Hot Meal volunteers help to prepare or serve a nutritious meal to guests in need.

Nourish volunteers help to provide supplemental food to low-income seniors.
