Hurricane Sandy Relief - Donate-A-Bag

November 7, 2012
Posted in Greenmarket

Donate a bag of market produce to help feed hungry New Yorkers. Donate-A-Bag opportunities are available at the below Greenmarkets through the month of December. Help feed hungry New Yorkers affected by Hurricane Sandy by purchasing an extra bag of produce while you shop and bring it to the Market Information Tent to make a direct donation to a kitchen that is serving hot meals to those in need. So far, Greenmarket customers are donating harvest season items in record numbers in response to the immense need for hunger relief that Sandy created, over 25,000 pounds have found their way to community kitchens, churches, shelters, food pantries and others serving victims of the storm. Volunteers Needed!  We need volunteers to assist with collections for our Donate-A-Bag program. Volunteers will help promote Donate-A-Bag throughout the market and collect items as they get donated. If interested, please email Liz Carollo directly at and specify which market you are interested in. DONATE-A-BAG SCHEDULE Wednesdays, thru December (8am-1pm) Union Square Greenmarket  Saturdays, thru December (8am-1pm) Manhattan Greenmarkets Union Square Greenmarket Brooklyn Greenmarkets Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket McCarren Park Greenmarket Fort Greene Greenmarket
