Join our wonderful delivery team and volunteer one Saturday morning every 4-6 weeks to deliver nutritious food to home-bound seniors. Many elders are still unable to access good food, and this program helps out by bringing grocery bags right to their homes. You will come to our pantry location in Wooster Square on your Saturday morning and deliver bags to 8-10 folks. Your route is already laid out for you and delivery usually takes no more than 2 hours at most.
