Brooklyn Relief Kitchen is staffed and managed by volunteers.  The kitchen is open from 6:30am to 2:30pm Tuesday thru Saturday. Volunteer hours are flexible but a consistent schedule is preferred.   


Experienced kitchen workers assist Chef Kate in the kitchen. Less experienced volunteers prep, portion food, clean, sanitize and sort donations.


Our volunteer drivers deliver food to our partnering frontline organizations using their own vehicles.

Food Drive

Weather permitting our food drive tent in front of Old First Reformed Church is staffed by volunteers Tuesday – Saturday 10am – 2:00pm.


Volunteers with experience in non-profit fundraising, marketing, graphics, and website maintenance keep the proverbial gears turning.

If you are interested in volunteering contact us at info@brooklynreliefkitchen.org.

Offsite Food Drive

If your organization, building, school or business would like to organize a food drive on our behalf we are very happy to assist you with signage, donation boxes, information flyers, donation jar, and donation pickup. This is especially important for us in the winter months!
