Pack and Distribute Food at a Busy Pantry

The Kehilat Sephardim Food Pantry's mission is to provide a three to five day supply of emergency groceries once every two weeks for residents who do not have enough food because they lack the funds. All families and individuals are eligible to receive food assistance. Additionally, the pantry is kosher.

WHAT: Pack and distribute bags of food for the clients of this busy kosher food pantry. Volunteers work outside and may need to do some heavy lifting. This pantry serves a diverse population so proficiency in Spanish, Mandarin, or Fuzhou is helpful (but not required).

WHEN: Shifts are weekly, Sunday through Friday in the morning (9:00-12:30) or afternoon (12:00-3:30), but volunteers can come whenever they are available.

WHERE: 150-62 78th Rd. Kew Gardens Hills, NY 11367
