Volunteer opportunity description

EVLoves NYC ( https://www.evloves.nyc/) is an amazing non-profit organization that serves our food-insecure neighbors. We cook and package meals every week to distribute to groups around the city. Lots of meals. Upwards of 1800 meals every Sunday. We are always looking for volunteers to join our team. Working here seems to appeal to a wide variety of people - students, artists, musicians, writers, bartenders, and lawyers. There are lots of East Village locals but people travel from all over the city to work with us every week. It's fun, noisy (we often have a DJ!), and rewarding. Each Sunday morning, we get together on the ground floor of a community center on East 6th Street. The teams who do prep and cooking start at 9:30; those of us who get the food into packages and boxes start at 11:30; the clean-up crew starts around 2. Beginning at about 1pm, bikes, cars and trucks start arriving to pick up the boxes and distribute our meals to people and community refrigerators throughout the five boroughs. It's pretty cool and very volunteer-dependent.


Volunteers should be over 18 years of age and have proof of vaccination.

When you come, please cover your hair with a hat or a scarf and wear closed-toe shoes (no sandals), shirts with sleeves, and long pants. (These are health department requirements for people working with hot food!)
