At Home Sandwich Making for the New York Common Pantry
Join our monthly initiative to make sandwiches at home and help bring nourishment to neighbors in need. Drop them off at the synagogue in the morning and they'll be enjoyed by the afternoon!
The NYCP also gladly accepts used FreshDirect bags that are clean, in good condition, and with all personal information removed. Please feel free to bring these during the sandwich drop-off time and we will deliver them to the Pantry.
Fri / Oct 22 / 9:00 - 10:30 am
Madison Avenue and 87th Street entrance (main entrance)
Each sandwich should be composed of 2 pieces of whole wheat bread and one of the following
1. 3 pieces of cheese (i.e. American) (and condiments on the side i.e. mayo, mustard if you have)
2. Peanut butter and jelly
3. Slices of kosher meat
Place the sandwich in a Ziploc bag and then a brown paper bag.
Please label the brown paper bag, “[Type of sandwich] from PAS.”
Each volunteer is being asked to make at least 20 sandwiches.
