Volunteer Day with Food Bank for New York City

Join the NYC Muslim-Jewish Solidarity Committee for a volunteer day at the Food Bank for NYC's Bronx Food Distribution Warehouse. We will sort and repack bulk shipped food and goods for redistribution around the city. A day before we mark 16 years to the September 11th attacks, we will gather as one to work together for the greater community of the city we all love. No special skills are required.


Things to Remember

- Volunteers are advised to wear comfortable, casual clothes. Closed-toe shoes are required.

- Volunteers must be at least 16 years old to participate; 1 adult for every 5 volunteers under 18. 

- Volunteers will be asked to present photo ID upon arrival. 

Getting There

Location: Food Distribution Warehouse, Hunts Point Cooperative Market 

355 Food Center Drive, Bronx NY 10474 

Public Transit: Take the #6 train to Hunts Point, and transfer to the Bx6 bus in front of the gas station. When you board the Bx6 bus, ask the driver to let you out at the stop for the entrance to the Hunts Point Cooperative Market. 

Driving: Parking is available. There is a $3 cash fee for cars to enter the Market. 

You’ve arrived!

Once you arrive at Hunts Point Cooperative Market ask the guard to direct you to the Food Bank Warehouse. Follow the long driveway to the left. The Food Bank Warehouse entrance is the last door on the left; a small glass door after a line of truck bays. Climb the stairs to the top floor, where you will be buzzed in. Upon arrival, you'll first see Denise and Juan, the receptionists at the front desk. They will buzz you in and direct you to the break room down the hall. The warehouse professional on site that day will come meet you in the break room.
