Volunteer opportunity description

GMHC needs volunteer support every week for our Grab & Go Food Distribution Program. Please review the details below and let me know if you are interested. Send an email to Shelley Levine at ShelleyL@gmhc.org


Overview of the Program

  • GMHC's Grab & Go Food Distribution Program was created in response to the building and our dining room closing in March 2020 due to COVID-19. To read more about service delivery for all programs, please go HERE. We are continuing to provide food support through the Grab & Go Program until it is safe to reopen our dining room. Every Wednesday, we distribute locally sourced fresh produce, dairy, eggs, shelf stable foods, and hygiene kits from the lobby of our building. This program is open to GMHC clients and the general public.


Prior to being confirmed, the following steps will need to be completed:

  • Attend a zoom GMHC volunteer orientation.
  • Complete the volunteer application and pledge of confidentiality.
  • Complete a background check. This does require providing your SSN to the online background check system.
  • Provide COVID vaccination proof that includes proof of a booster shot.
