North Brooklyn Angels runs on volunteer power, and we offer five distinct volunteer opportunities to support our current project to tackle food insecurity:
The Angelmobile is a mobile soup kitchen that aims to serve 1,000 meals per week to the food insecure in North Brooklyn. Each weekday, the Angelmobile currently serves (or will serve) 200 meals at a designated location. (Visit the Angelmobile Meals page to see the weekly schedule.) Volunteers are needed to set up the meal service and to serve meals, and each shift runs from 12 p.m.-2 p.m. No experience handling food is necessary.
I am available:
The Dessert Corps bakes desserts to drop-off at St. John's Lutheran Church (155 Milton Street) for their weekly Saturday lunch service. Each month Dessert Corps members will be informed of the month’s baking theme along with designated quantity.
The Street Team hosts the information table at community events, promoting the project and recruiting new volunteers. In addition to events, the Team posts fliers around North Brooklyn about the Angelmobile meals and our volunteer opportunities. Volunteers will be provided with the locations for flyering as well as the materials they’ll need for flyering. Shifts are flexible and based on availability.

The Transportation Fleet works to drive the Angelmobile and deliver food donations to our kitchen. The Fleet is divided into two roles: Angelmobile Driver and Food Donation Courier.
The Angelmobile Driver will drive the Angelmobile or serve as the co-pilot for the weekly Angelmobile meals and special events. The typical Angelmobile weekly meal shift runs from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., and volunteer Angelmobile Driver Special events shifts vary in length.
The food donation courier will pick up food donations and drop them off at St. John’s Lutheran Church (155 Milton Street). Volunteers will need to have personal access to a cargo bike or an automobile.
Volunteer Cooks prepare dishes to supplement our daily meals. We are now operating our own kitchen out of Our Lady of Mount Carmel (275 North 8th Street). We receive food donations from CSAs and restaurants, and some of these donations require preparation at our kitchen. Experienced cooks are needed to transform these donations into supplementary dishes.
The weekday cooking schedule is 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on Monday through Friday. The Sunday shift will run from 1 p.m.-4 p.m. Volunteers may arrive and leave at any time, but we ask that each volunteer commit to a two-hour shift.
