Nope! Just bring yourself, an energetic attitude, and we’ll show you the rest.

 

Can I just show up?

Please contact us at volunteer@sjsk.nyc to schedule a Saturday before you or your group visit. We have a small space, and with lots of volunteers we may not be able to fit everyone or ensure that everyone finds a job in our kitchen.

We try to serve a special meal for a number of holidays throughout the year. Our holiday meal service is always the Saturday before the holiday, unless the holiday falls on a Saturday.

We love donations! Please send us a message at donate@sjsk.nyc to let us know what you would like to bring and we’ll let you know when someone will be available to receive your gift. 

 

Can I earn community service hours by volunteering?

Yes! Please email us at volunteer@sjsk.nyc to let us know your situation and how many hours you need to complete.
