Volunteer opportunity description

Make the Road New York is taking all necessary precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and, for the past few weeks, we ceased food pantry operations. However, there has been a significant need in our community and we are happy to announce that MRNY is reopening our food pantries next week. We are looking for responsible volunteers who can help coordinate our emergency food deliveries to community members who are unable to visit the physical pantry location. 

We are looking for volunteers to help in our Food Pantries for these days and times:

Bushwick, Brooklyn

Fridays and Mondays, 9 am - 2:30 pm

Jackson Heights, Queens

Wednesdays, 9 am - 2:30 pm 

Volunteer responsibilities include: 

- Greeting and screening volunteers who will make deliveries around the neighborhood ("deliverista volunteers") 

- Ensuring that volunteers have personal protective gear, delivery routes, and other supplies that are necessary 

- Manage office space to ensure that proper safety guidelines are followed

- Help coordinate delivery routes and ensure that deliveries are completed 

For more information please email us at! 



  • Leadership skills and team player attitude
  • Ability to commit to a consistent shift once a week to help coordinate the food pantry efforts

The health and safety of staff, volunteers, and community members is our priority. Volunteers must follow the health guidelines described below to ensure everyone including volunteers and those being served stay safe.

If any of the following conditions apply to you, stay home and DO NOT SIGN-UP to volunteer:

  • You are sick
  • You are over 50 years old or have chronic health conditions, including chronic lung disease, heart disease, diabetes, cancer or a weakened immune system.

Volunteer applicants will have to fill out a form and answer screening questions. Their temperature will be taken at the food pantry site before starting the assignment.
