Volunteers on New York Cares' Hunger projects do more than just serve a meal -- they provide a warm smile, friendly conversation, and the reassurance that someone cares. These projects serve hundreds of men, women, and children at homeless shelters, churches, and senior centers each day.
Below is a list of Hunger projects in need of new volunteers. Use the filters to find a project near you or on a convenient day of the week and sign up today!
More than 63,000 New Yorkers volunteered last year on projects in Manhattan, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island. If you see a challenge that is affecting your community, New York Cares offers volunteer opportunities where you can respond.
