  • This location is shown only to members

On Saturday, July 5th, our group will assist New York Common Pantry with their weekly efforts of the sorting & distribution of food to many of the community's underserved in need!


As volunteers, we'll pack food bags according to each pantry member's specifications with selections in each of the major food groups, then assist distributing the packages to the pantry's clients.

The time commitment is from 9:00am - 12:00pm and goes by really quickly!

Because there are so few spots available, and the pantry has a true need for the assistance, please only RSVP if you are sure you'll be able to make it for the entire time.

Directions to the Pantry
- Take the 2 or 3 train to 110th Street. Walk east on 110th Street to 5th Avenue. Turn right on 5th Avenue and walk one block to East 109th Street. Turn left and end at 8 East 109th Street.

The pantry is located at 8 East 109th Street between Madison and 5th Avenues. The entrance is on 109th Street on the right side of the building.

Other transportation nearby the 6 train to 110th Street, or either the M1, M2, M3, or M4 buses to 109 street and Madison Ave. (if you're heading uptown) or Fifth Ave. (if you're heading downtown).

See you there! Feel free to send a text to Daniel at[masked] if you have any questions, running late, etc. Thanks!

    I am so very sorry. I had a family emergency & didn't get a chance to change my RSVP. I understand how important volunteer work is and that others rely on us. Again, my apologies!

    Hi All please be advised the pantry only expects 8-10 volunteers from Harlem GO. Most times we share the time slot with other volunteer groups. After the first ten people signed up, there is an extensive waitlist. If for some reason someone from the volunteer list cannot make it, please change your RSVP to no, so the next person on the waitlist can get on. If you are on the waitlist, Please do not just show up we want to be respectful of everyone's time. Thank you for understanding.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
