Individuals

Without the help of our amazing volunteers — more than 13,000 strong every year — we simply would not be able to cook and deliver over 7,000 delicious and nutritious meals each weekday to our neighbors in need. Outnumbering our staff by a ratio of more than 100 to 1, volunteers work in the kitchen, deliver meals and work in meal packaging, work in our office and help out with special events.

We have opportunities for corporate, community, and student groups, as well as  individuals. For more information, you can contact our Volunteer Office at volunteer@glwd.org or 212.294.8158.
