Weekend Repack in Hunts Point

This month, we are welcoming volunteers of all ages to our Warehouse & Distribution Center in the Bronx, uniting in an effort to repack thousands of pounds of donated food to be distributed to those in need across New York City. Food Bank For New York City is proud to serve ALL New Yorkers, including the LGBTQ+. We recognize these neighbors face unique circumstances that can leave them vulnerable to food insecurity and poverty. Food Bank invites volunteers to help serve our member charities that provide food and direct services to the LGBTQI+ at this repack on June 22nd.

Our morning shift will be geared towards Child Hunger and the afternoon shift will be dedicated to the LGBTQI+ community.

Get ready to sort, pack, box, weigh, and label to get these much-needed food items out the door to fellow New Yorkers.

Large groups and families are welcome. Choose one or both Saturday shifts:

Morning Shift: 10:00am-12:30pm
Afternoon Shift: 1:30pm-4:00pm


Some important notes:

-- This project will take place at our Warehouse at 355 Food Center Drive in Hunts Point in the Bronx (6 train to Hunts Point, then Bx6 to Food Center Drive/Hunts Point Market.)
-- Volunteers age 5 and up are welcome. (NOTE: High school students may attend independently if they bring Food Bank's youth volunteer waiver completed by a parent or guardian. Email volunteer@foodbanknyc.org to request a copy of the youth waiver. Youth in middle or elementary school must be accompanied by at least one adult per five youth.)
-- Please wear sturdy closed-toe shoes and refrain from wearing jewelry that may slip off while working.
-- While the project is indoors, some areas of our Warehouse are not temperature-controlled. Please bring extra layers to stay comfortable throughout your shift.

Questions? Email volunteer@foodbanknyc.org. We hope to see you in Hunts Point!
