***This program is aimed at families with young children***

We’ll be assembling toiletry packs for Community Kitchen and Pantry of West Harlem, and talking about food justice in the context of what else families might lack because they can’t afford food, or choose to buy it over other necessities. Come learn and serve with us and deepen your understanding of the challenges facing food insecure New Yorkers!

Repair the World Clothing Swap


Have you Marie Kondo-ed your home and ended up with piles of clothes that no longer spark joy?? Then bring them to our Clothing Swap! Refresh your wardrobe just in time for spring by bringing clothes that you no longer need and swapping them for some sweet new duds. Whatever isn’t swapped will be packed into “Clean Out Bags” and recycled to divert old clothes from filling up landfills with textiles; so feel free to bring items that are both worn and not fit for swapping, as well as stuff that’s still in good shape!







On average, only 20% of clothes are worn on a regular basis – bring in items from the other 80% of your closet and learn about the importance of sustainable fashion choices. Please bring clothing that would be appropriate for any and all genders.

Whats a Jew To Do? The Jewish Response to the Rise of White Nationalism

As Jews, we are painfully aware that antisemitism is on the rise. In 2017, our country saw a 57% spike in incidents motivated by anti-Jewish bias including physical assaults, vandalism and attacks on Jewish institutions according to the Anti-Defamation League.

In the face of such heinous acts, it can be easy to lose ourselves in fear, anger and sadness. But what if we could isolate and understand the ideologies driving these crimes? What if we could channel our emotions into actions that send a message of unwavering resilience while standing in solidarity with other marginalized groups and allies?

Join us for a moderated panel discussion on white nationalism, how Jews fit into this ideology and strategies for proactively responding as a community.

This program is free of charge, but please register by Wednesday, March 27th so we can provide adequate space and food.

What’s a Jew to Do? The Jewish Response to the Rise in White Nationalism.

Panelists:
David Kurzmann – Moderator: Executive Director, Jewish Community Relations Council/AJC
Kirsten Fermaglich: Associate Professor of History and Jewish Studies, Michigan State University
Ruth Bergman: Director of Education, Holocaust Memorial Center
Rabbi Ariana Silverman: Rabbi, Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue
Olivia Guterson: Community organizer and artist

Friday Volunteering at The Campaign Against Hunger

Every Wednesday afternoon, come volunteer at The Campaign Against Hunger (TCAH) in Bed Stuy. TCAH operates NYC’s largest emergency food pantry — five days a week, New Yorkers in need visit the pantry to receive free food. The pantry is unique because it allows clients to have a choice in the food they are given, similar to shopping at a supermarket. Clients can choose from fresh fruits, vegetables and various food items according to their preference instead of receiving a pre-packaged pantry bag.


Volunteers will be giving support in the backroom (sorting items to be brought into the pantry) or front of the pantry (serving clients).


For further questions, please contact Riki at [email protected].

Canvass to Reduce Hunger in Brooklyn

Volunteer with Repair the World and Hunger Free America! Join us in distributing information about the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) around Nostrand Ave / Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights.


Nationwide, approximately 33% of people eligible for SNAP benefits do not participate. Volunteers will be canvassing on behalf of Hunger Free America in Central Brooklyn to raise awareness about SNAP benefits available to but underutilized by many NYC residents. Canvassing provides crucial information to local residents on who to contact to receive more information and check their eligibility.


Volunteers will get the chance to meet community members and inform others of the benefits of SNAP. Prior to canvassing, we will meet in the Repair the World Brooklyn workshop to provide an overview of SNAP and its importance to the NYC community. We will then do outreach in the community for an hour and return for reflection.


Accessibility info: We will be handing out flyers in various locations in the neighborhood, which requires moving around and being in the cold for varied periods of time.There can be as much or as little walking as the pariticipants choose.


Volunteers ages 15+ please.

Cook a Meal for Neighbors in Need on the Upper West Side (Ages 10-14

Join Repair the World and other families to cook a hot meal for neighbors experiencing homelessness who are housed temporarily at B’Nai Jeshrun (BJ), which is part of the Emergency Shelter Network (ESN). The Emergency Shelter Network consists of over 50 faith-based communities that supplement and offer alternatives to the shelter system. BJ’s shelter houses 10 women each night, Sunday-Thursday, year-round.


We’ll spend time together learning about homelessness, understanding how the shelter system works, and cooking a vegetarian meal that clients will enjoy during their stay. Parents will spend time with Rachel Figurasmith, Senior Educator, talking about how to continue the conversation about homelessness in NYC with their children. Kids will spend time engaged in experiential learning activities on the same topic.


This event is designed for families with kids ages 10-14. Please note that space is limited for this opportunity.

April Family Farm Day

Volunteer with Repair the World at Bushwick City Farms (BCF)! We will be engaging in hands-on work such as composting, clean up, and other farm maintenance, and discussing food access and the importance of community gardens.


BCF is a network of open spaces run by neighborhood volunteers that provides free food, clothing, and educational programs for the community. BCF builds and helps maintain vegetable gardens for local public schools and coordinates with local businesses to distribute bread and fresh produce donations. 


This project is designed for families with children ages 8-14. If you’d like to attend with a child who is older or younger, please email Alison. Please be sure to register all attendees in separate orders.


Accessibility info: We will be doing garden work that requires physical labor (specific tasks to be decided, but likely a mix of weeding, composting, and more). The entrance to the farm does not involve steps but the ground is uneven as there are woodchips on the ground.
