Wednesday Volunteering at The Campaign Against Hunger food pantry

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].

Volunteer with Books Through Bars!

In honor of celebrating freedom this Passover season, join Repair the World to package books to send to incarecerated people with Books Through Bars. NYC Books Through Bars is an all-volunteer-run group that sends free, donated books to incarcerated people across the nation.


We’ll be reading letters from people in prison, filling book requests, putting together packages to mail to prisons, and cleaning the space where donated books are stored before they’re sent out.


Books Though Bars is located in the basement of Freebird Books, and can be dusty; wear close-toed shoes and clothes that can get dirty. This is not an accessible location; entrance is via the hatch, and a set of stairs, and the floor can be uneven. Watch your head when entering. This is suggested for people 14 and older and is not appropriate for young children.

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 outside for varied periods of time. There can be as much or as little walking as the pariticipants choose.


Volunteers ages 15+ please.

Volunteer at The Campaign Against Hunger’s Urban Farm

Join Repair the World in volunteering and having fun at The Campaign Against Hunger’s urban farm


In 2009, The Campaign Against Hunger became the first community-based organization in New York City to effectively create its own “farm to pantry” distribution loop with the opening of Saratoga Urban Agro-Ecological Center. The Saratoga Farm encompasses 7,900 sq. feet and produces roughly 7,000 pounds of produce each farm season.


Volunteers can expect to engage in manual labor (such as shoveling or pushing wheelbarrows). From March to May, we will be preparing the farm for growing season and farmer’s market, which starts in July.


Please  sign up as an individual and if you’d like to bring a group of 2-10 people please email Riki. For volunteer groups or general questions, please contact Riki at [email protected]

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.


Feel free to email Alison Rollman with any questions or concerns at [email protected].

Canvass to Reduce Hunger in Central Harlem

Nearly 1.1 million New Yorkers struggle with food insecurity. Become a SNAP Street Outreach Volunteer and help connect your community to possible resources available to them and help families put food on their table. Due to a variety of barriers nearly 500,000 New Yorkers qualify for SNAP benefits but are not enrolled in the program. Volunteers will canvass targeted underserved neighborhoods and distribute information about federal nutrition programs and Hunger Free America’s free benefit application assistance services. Community outreach is an effective way to educate fellow New Yorkers about the SNAP program and where the closet Hunger Free America SNAP screening sites are to them.


This role is ideal for someone who is outgoing and friendly; comfortable talking to people they don’t know; enjoys being outside in different communities; and supports the mission to eliminate food insecurity in NYC. Must be 18 years old, or accompanied by someone 18 or older, and able to be outside for around 2 hours. Participants will be distributing information about the SNAP program and the Hunger Free America Benefits Access team.

Marygrove College Campus Beautification Day

Come and spend the morning working alongside Marygrove alumni, faculty and staff members to prepare the campus for commencement on May 11 and make it beautiful for the rest of the year. We will rake leaves and grass, pick up trash, clean out flower beds and plant LOTS of pretty flowers. The day is hard work and a lot of fun. Seeing the transformation of the campus as we work is always a joy. Anyone who has had the opportunity to come and help us in the past knows first-hand what a difference these few hours of work make for our beautiful campus. The flowers last year were exceptional and the grounds looked better than ever.

The schedule includes clean up and planting from 9:00 a.m. until 1 p.m., followed by an hour to admire our work, have lunch and socialize with friends.
