Location: JCC Harlem, 318 West 118th Street
From: Monday, January 21, 12:30 pm
This MLK Day, spend time at the JCC Harlem assembling shelf-stable food packets for those who receive services from the Community Kitchen and Pantry of West Harlem, an initiative of the Food Bank for New York City. The Community Pantry and Kitchen is an incredible asset in Harlem, offering direct food service to New Yorkers in need since 1984.
Volunteers will come together with the mission of ending hunger by organizing food, information, and support for community survival, empowerment, and dignity. Volunteers will create shelf-stable food packets in environmentally friendly packaging and utilizing high quality, bulk food. The food packets created will be available at the Community Kitchen & Food Pantry’s supermarket-style pantry for clients to select and then bring home to cook.
