At Food Bank, we believe that our greatest resources are human! Nowhere is that seen better than in the faces of the individuals giving shape and texture to our mission on a daily basis: our employees…a group often referred to as “Food Bankers.” We are an intentionally diverse team of talent, perspectives and personalities bonded by a true belief and passion that NO ONE should be hungry in our country and certainly not in what we believe to be the world’s greatest city. Successful Food Bankers are New Yorkers who focus their energies on finding innovative and sustainable ways to serve our neighbors in collaboration and solidarity with our network of partners, members and supporters.

You can find our open employment opportunities below. If you are both interested and willing to bring the talent and disposition required to solve hunger, we hope you’ll consider Food Bank For New York City as your place to make a difference.

You want to help New Yorkers SOLVE hunger.

We serve people known as New Yorkers. We don’t judge their story, we’re simply glad to be of assistance to 1.5 million of our neighbors.

You’re able to bring joy…to serving a mission, too!

Moving 120 meals every NY Minute is not easy work and Food Bankers take our collective responsibilities very seriously. We take the environment we work in pretty seriously, as well. We look for talent that’s willing, able, and interested in working openly, collaboratively and respectfully. We’re so very eager to be successful at our mission, that we’re willing to fail! We believe in hunger’s solutions so much that we listen to and share what we learn from all over the country, city, neighborhood and conference room.
