From the Spring of 2015 to 2018, the role of the Volunteer Hunger Relief Corps task force was to combat hunger in Westchester and Rockland counties by providing ongoing volunteer support and volunteer management resources to local Hunger Relief Organizations.
 
The Volunteer Hunger Relief Corps was made possible by a Volunteer Generation Fund grant from the New York State Commission on National and Community Service.

Come Help Families in Need Select Foods at a Mobile Food Pantry

The Food Bank for Westchester's Mobile Food Pantry truck will be parked in Alexander Hamilton High School's parking lot for approximately 1.5 hours once a month. Volunteers will unload the Food Bank's truck and then display the donated food. Additionally, volunteers will assist the clients with their choices and filling their bags, boxes, or carts with pasta, cereal, canned beans, rice, snacks, beverages, frozen meat, fresh vegetables, and other fare.

Make a Meal (and serve it, too!) at a Soup Kitchen

Enjoy the camaraderie of cooking with family and/or friends!

If you can find the time in your schedule, why don’t stay and serve the meal, too?! Meals needed Tuesday through Friday evenings. Dinner is served at 5 pm. Please express interest, and we'll connect you with the scheduler.

Deliver Food to People in Need in Rockland County

Volunteers are needed to deliver bags of healthy foods to the homes of people living with chronic illnesses as part of TOUCH’s Eating Well Nutrition Program – an ADA Medical Nutrition Therapy model. The main goal of the program is improving health through increased understanding of the link between eating habits and medical conditions like diabetes, high cholesterol, and obesity. You will be responsible for taking 1 – 5 bags of food to selected families – preferably on a regular basis. Without your help these people may not get the balanced diet they need. Of course, a secondary benefit is the joy you’ll bring when you visit. Volunteer must have own transportation. This opportunity is part of the Hunger Relief Corps program.
