The Volunteer Hunger Relief Corps is just one of Volunteer New York!’s many programs. This program focuses on reducing poverty and combating hunger in Rockland and Westchester. All Hunger Relief Corps members must complete an orientation session before going on to do volunteer work. These sessions are usually held in Westchester and are a prerequisite for individuals hoping to become team leaders. Once orientation is complete, Hunger Relief Corps members choose which organization they want to volunteer with. The list of options includes Steppin’ Up Yonkers, Hillside Food Outreach, and Community Service Associates, Inc.
