Prep & Serve in West Harlem

Volunteers chop, mix, and prepare food for use at our nightly dinner service, serving up to 500 New Yorkers. You'll also serve a fresh hot meal to our senior clients! Help our kitchen staff clean up and prepare the space for the next day. 

Anyone preparing food should remove watches, rings, bracelets and all other jewelry on their arms or hands, as well as long earrings or necklaces, while preparing food. Jewelry can fall into the food and pose a health hazard. Medical alert bracelets or a smooth ring such as a wedding band are allowed. 

While we have a shared locker, please leave all valuables at home.

Dress Code:
Closed-toed shoes and shirts with sleeves are REQUIRED. No tank tops. Short or long sleeves only.
Long pants or skirts at or below the knee required.
NO Short-shorts.

For groups of volunteers, we recommend you wear a team color or your corporate t-shirts.

Please Note: All volunteers must be 18 years of age or older to work in our kitchen.
