Volunteers are essential to this success as they are on the front lines of food justice while assisting our customers.  From assisting with intake to unloading food items to harvesting produce from our farm we call the TCAH Urban Farm, volunteers are at the core of our approach to caring. If your group would like to volunteer or you have questions about internships and volunteer-based positions, contact our Volunteer and Community Liaison, Greshawna Toussaint: gtoussaint@tcahnyc.org, or call 718.773.3551 x115.
