Food Pantry volunteers insure that important food resources donated by a local community organizations are made available to elders in need. The free nutritious food contributes to the health and well being of the elders and to the Mystic Valley Elder Services’ mission to support the safe independence of older adults.
Volunteers unload boxes of donated food, staff food distribution tables, and greet and assist participants. The commitment for this program is approximately 2-3 hours per month. We are currently recruiting volunteers to serve at one of our Malden locations on Thursday afternoons.
