POTS: Food Pantry Assistant (Bronx)

Do you want to help serve the hungry in our food pantry?

Part Of The Solution (POTS) is located in the Bronx and is between the Botanical Gardens and Fordham Metro North stops. POTS is also located off the B/D/4 subway lines at the Kingsbridge Road stations. Every day POTS serves around 80-100 families at our food pantry.

Food Pantry Volunteer
Saturdays 8:30am - 3pm

  • Help clients with any questions they have as they pick up thier food
  • Sanitize work stations and help maintain social distancing guidelines
  • Perform "check-in/out" duties ensuring clients are receiving the appropriate amount of food based upon established nutritional guidelines

Minimum age: 14

POTS’ mosaic of services, big and small, simple and complex, come together in its "one-stop shop" model. Offering a wide array of support under one roof, staff and services work in concert to address diverse and complex needs. When POTS does not directly provide a needed service, staff link clients with peer organizations to ensure every individual receives the help he or she needs. Anyone who turns to POTS in crisis will leave with help, hope and a chance at improved stability. Services include: community dining room, food pantry, mail services, showers, barbershop, clothing room, legal clinic, case management, and more!
