COVID-19 Response Update: Food Bank Temporarily Suspending All Volunteer Assistance

Food Bank For New York City is grateful for the support we have received from passionate volunteers as we continue to mobilize resources to help New Yorkers in need across the five boroughs. In March, we made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend our onsite volunteer programs and shift to paid temporary workers to support operations at our Community Kitchen & Pantry in West Harlem and our Warehouse & Distribution Center in Hunts Point. This has allowed us to maintain a safe environment for our clients with a regular, dedicated workforce, while also fueling our city during this challenging time and supporting New Yorkers who are currently out of work.

You Can Still Support Our Mission

While Food Bank has temporarily suspended our onsite volunteer programs amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve developed new ways for our fellow New Yorkers to take action for our neighbors in need – right from where you are!

From making a donation, or starting an online fundraiser (on your own, with friends, or at your workplace) to writing a letter of hope to a senior in need – we even have ways to get your kids and teens involved! We look forward to the impact you’ll make in this challenging time.
