  • 9 people are interested

Fight hunger in Boston by providing grocery boxes to our neighbors in need. The need for groceries and food pantries has grown exponentially since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Help provide food to those who have been impacted the hardest.

COVID-19 precautions will include temperature checks, social distancing, hand sanitizers and outdoor distribution among others. We ask that you only volunteer if you are feeling well and have not been exposed to illness recently.

Volunteers will be assisting with food distribution by:

  • Packing boxes
  • Stocking shelves, freezers and refrigerator
  • Breaking down boxes
  • Prepare additional bags for boxes
  • Loading and unloading truck during food pick-up.

Monday: 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

Tuesday: 8:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

Wednesday: 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
