Get involved

The Sylvia Center is on a mission to create communities of healthy eaters. Ready to join us? There are so many ways to get involved.


This year, The Sylvia Center taught over 3,500 young people and their families in New York City and Columbia County how to cook and love healthy food. Your support will help us reach even more youth, teens and family members.



We welcome dedicated volunteers to work with us in the kitchen and classroom, to help out at special events, or to come to the farm for hands-on work days.
