Did you know 1 in 5 New Yorkers is food insecure?
We have three ways you can help:
1) Start your day off right and volunteer to help serve a hot breakfast at the NY Common Pantry, 8 East 109th Street one Tuesday a month. Volunteers plate meals in the kitchen for 150 to 200 people.
2) If the breakfast shift is too early for you, help with the packing and distribution of food pantry packages for families from 9 am to noon one Wednesday a month.
3) Beginning Sunday, April 28 (not before as the building is kosher for Passover) drop off your donations of nonperishable food items in the OZ social hall. Examples: Pasta (1 lb), Canned Beans, Dry Beans (1 lb), Shelf-stable Milk (1qt). Please, no glass jars.
