Program Details


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.


Drop-off hours:

Thu / Jul 11 / 9:30-11:00 am

Madison Avenue and 87th Street entrance (main entrance)


Sandwich-making instructions:

  • 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)
    2. Peanut butter and jelly
    3. Slices of kosher meat

    Individually wrap each sandwich in one of these options: (a) a sealable plastic zip-up/roll-up bag, (b) cling wrap sealed with tape, or (c) wax paper sealed with tape. 

  • Please label the wrapped sandwich, “[Type of sandwich] from PAS.” 

  • Each volunteer is being asked to make at least 20 sandwiches.

Important Health and Safety Requirements for Sandwich-Making:

To ensure that we are providing fresh sandwiches that are up to all health and food safety standards, anyone preparing sandwiches must:


WASH HANDS

Before starting all food preparation, wash your hands thoroughly for 20 seconds and pat dry with a clean paper towel.


WEAR PLASTIC GLOVES, FACE MASK, AND A HAT/HAIRNET. PUT ON IMMEDIATELY AFTER WASHING HANDS

Put on plastic gloves and a face mask before handling any food product. Replace the gloves if you have touched your face, unclean surfaces or if you leave the food preparation area. Please also wear a hat or hairnet with your hair pulled back.


SEAL FRESH FOOD 

Ensure that the sandwiches that you have prepared are safely sealed in a plastic bag, cling wrap, or wax paper for safe transportation.


KEEP SANDWICHES FRESH BY KEEPING THEM COOL 

All sandwiches containing meat or cheese must be refrigerated.
