Once or twice a year we offer volunteer training before one of our Slur happy hours. At this event, future volunteers will learn more about the history of the slow food movement and the programs of Slow Food NYC. Anyone who wants to represent SFNYC at an information table or at an event is required to go through this training first so they can answer questions from the general public. These volunteers are also welcome to help out on board committees: planning Slow U, book club, fundraiser or other Slur events, or working on Urban Harvest or Snail of Approval programming.
Watch our Events Calendar or sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of this page for upcoming training sessions.
HANDS ON WORK
Many times during the year we will put out a call for volunteers to help plant or prepare our farm space or help at a school garden. You might want to volunteer for an on-going commitment on the farm during the summer. No special training is necessary, just the commitment to show up and the willingness to work.
Watch our Events Calendar or sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of this page for upcoming volunteer days and work opportunities at our gardens.
We are also always looking for volunteers with special skills to help make our large non-profit run. We need graphic designers, public relations professionals, photographers and videographers, grant writers, event professionals, Food industry and local agricultural professionals help create our adult educational programs that help fund our programs with NYC school children. If you have a special skill you want to share, or a great fundraising/educational idea - please let us know by filling out this form.
