New York Italians Volunteers with City Harvest

New York Italians have been asked to participate in a City Harvest volunteer project to take place on Saturday, March 8 at 8:45am in the Bronx!

The project will take place at St. Mary's Park Mobile Market, 595 Trinity Avenue, Bronx, NY. The site is easily accessible by the 6 train to E. 149th Street (5 block walk) or the 2/5 trains to Jackson Avenue (one block walk).

Volunteers will be stationed at 3-4 market tables, each supplied with thousands of pounds of fresh produce that they will help distribute to eligible market-goers. Sample produce items may include bananas, onions, cabbage, or potatoes. As the market-goers stop by each table, volunteers greet them and then weigh and bag the produce. Note: All food is distributed free of charge.

All volunteers should arrive promptly at 8:45am. Your promptness ensures that we will be able to start the Mobile Market on time. The market should end around 12pm.

You MUST sign up using this link, which will redirect you to the City Harvest page:

You must commit and sign up by Thursday, March 6. After that date, sign up will be closed.

Volunteers are essential to helping City Harvest end hunger in New York City and we couldn't do it without you! If you have any questions, please direct them to [masked] and we will respond promptly.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
