“The Coalition has filled a huge hole in my heart. We pull up to each stop and send the clients off with a hot meal. I know that if only for that moment in time, my crew and I made a difference in someone’s life.” – Vanessa, GCFP Volunteer

The Coalition greatly appreciates your interest in volunteering and helping homeless New Yorkers. We currently have volunteer opportunities with our Grand Central Food Program.

Our Grand Central Food Program is the largest nightly mobile soup kitchen in the country delivering roughly 1,000 meals every night of the year at 22 stops around New York. We take up to 6 volunteers to join us at our first stop at St. Bartholomew’s Church from 4:30pm to help us set up and serve meals until 6:30pm Monday through Friday.

The Grand Central Food Program is also looking for volunteer drivers from 6:45pm until roughly 9:30pm. The route begins and ends at St. Bartholomew’s Church on 51st Street. This opportunity requires that you commit to joining us consistently.

If you would like to learn more about these opportunities, please email us at volunteer@cfthomeless.org.
