Fare Share 2022

November 25, 2022 5:30pm

Rising inflation, unemployment and high food costs are causing an alarming hunger epidemic in America, New York City is no different. In the past year we have witnessed a stark increase in the need for food assistance. We feed New Yorkers experiencing homelessness, asylum seekers, the underemployed, anyone facing food scarcity. 

Please become a Crossroads hunger responder today. Your tax deductible gift supports our fight against hunger, poverty, and food insecurity, we believe no New Yorker should go hungry.


We are busily preparing for Fare Share 2022 on Friday, November 25 and need your help! 

Fare Share 2020 and 2021 were great successes. This year we are making Fare Share 2022 even better, with plans to feed 400 guests a catered grab-and-go holiday meal, and to create a holiday bazaar where our guests can choose from a variety of gift items. We will also have a photographer at the event to capture the magic and will be posting pictures on our social media platforms and in our newsletters.

We hope to make it an evening to remember for all, and that's where you come in. We will be distributing dinner and gift items from inside St. Bart's Church, and we need volunteers to make it happen. In the true spirit of Crossroads, volunteers will act with hospitality from the heart, greeting everyone with eye contact, a warm smile and kind words.

Preparations start on Sunday, November 20 from 9-11 am. On Friday, November 25th, we need volunteers from 1 pm to 7 pm, starting with set-up and ending with clean-up. If you are shy about being on social media, please consider other volunteer opportunities where no photographer is present. Since so many people are interested in volunteering, please only sign up for one shift at this time. If there are gaps, we will reach out again. 

To volunteer, please email Martha Avery at  and indicate which shift you want to work. She will get back to you to confirm.
