Help provide food assistance to New Yorkers in need!

The United Jewish Council of the East Side (UJCES) supports the Lower East Side and wider NYC community with human services and community development programs. While the majority of services are oriented to seniors, UJCES also has programs for families and children. UJCES volunteers are essential to our mission as we serve New Yorkers.

DETAILS:

Food Pantry Assistance Volunteers support staff at UJCES's food pantries, and occasionally on walking deliveries to clients. One food pantry is located in the Orenstein Building on Willett St./Bialystoker Pl., and the other is at the Lillian Wald Houses on Avenue D.

As a volunteer, you may assist with:

  • Sorting pantry items and stocking shelves
  • Packing grocery items
  • Unloading new groceries from a truck
  • Handing out grocery packages to clients
  • Assisting clients with on-site order requests
  • Independently delivering packages via walking routes, as needed (from Orenstein Building only)

Training is provided on site. Tasks include bending and lifting heavy materials.

You must be 14+ years old to volunteer, and groups of volunteers 14-17 years old must be accompanied by parent(s) or guardian(s). For volunteers younger than 18 years old, walking deliveries will not be assigned unless volunteers are accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Carts are provided for easy walking delivery transport. Shifts take place rain or shine, and walking deliveries may involve multiple trips, and/or walking within approximately 60 minutes of the Orenstein Building.

You can join compassionate people in supplying nutritious food to the New York City community.

DAYS & TIMES:

Shifts are offered weekdays, with greater need on Wednesdays. We are looking for volunteers with fluency in Spanish, Cantonese, and/or Mandarin, on Thursdays. Shift times are between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. (shifts are shorter and differ depending on the day).

In preparation for Passover, our busy season, we are looking for extra volunteers, either individuals or groups, during Wednesday March 23 through Thursday, April 14. Please apply as soon as possible (instructions below) or express interest to volunteer@ujces.org to get involved!

HOW TO SIGN UP:
