Volunteers Needed For Harlem Food Bank Meal Preparation and Meal Service



PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT UNLESS YOU KNOW THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ATTEND.  Join a group of NYSN members as we help prepare over 500 meals for the needy and senior citizens at The Harlem Community Kitchen that is part of NY Food bank. No experience is necessary.  The staff at the food bank will instruct you on all that is needed.  You will likely chop, mix, stir and portion meals for distribution.  At the end of the afternoon you will also help serve meals to those in the senior center.  This event runs from 10:15am-4:30pm.  Please do not register if you can not attend at those times.

What to expect:

  • Please arrive at 10:15 for check in.
  • The kitchen staff will assign tasks for the afternoon.
  • Please do not wear open toe shoes, sandals, jewelery, watches , etc while you are preparing meals.
  • If you have a baseball cap or hair net that helps


Can I come alone?  Yes 100% of those attending will likely come on their own.
Dress code: casual, no open toes
age : 21+ ONLY
Can I come for part of the volunteer time?  Sorry we need you the entire time.
AGAIN, PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER FOR THIS ACTIVITY UNLESS YOU KNOW THAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY ATTEND.  They need as many hands to help as possible.  If you do not show up they will be missing a critical pair of hands that needs to be part of the process.  You will be hurting your fellow volunteers as well as the people they serve.  If you are registering for a friend they need to know this ~Thank you!
