Looking to support the immigrant community? Interested in food justice and fighting food insecurity? Looking for a low commitment of 3 hours per month?

The International Institute of New England is seeking volunteers to support our Mobile Food Pantry. Prior to COVID-19, we had an onsite food pantry for our clients and their families, but to better address the food security needs of our clients, we have been delivering food directly to clients!

On the last Friday of each month, we have volunteers travel to different communities around the Greater Boston area and drop food off to clients' houses or apartments.

The requirements for this position are:
- Access to a car ***
- Available between 9 am and 5 pm, but the deliveries take about 3 hours
- You do not need to sign up for each month

Mission Statement

The mission of the International Institute of New England is to create opportunities for refugees and immigrants to succeed through resettlement, education, career advancement and pathways to citizenship.

Description

The International Institute of New England has been welcoming refugees and immigrants to Massachusetts and New Hampshire for nearly a century.

IINE: Lowell was founded as part of the John Street YWCA in 1918, and in 1924, the International Institute of Boston

was established at the YWCA then located at 12 Newbury Street. The Institutes separated from the YWCA in 1935, and over the ensuing decades hundreds of community groups, individuals, corporations, and foundations joined forces with the International Institute to help new Americans integrate into New England. The International Institute of New Hampshire was founded in 1994 as a reorganization, continuation, and expansion of existing services in place since 1987. In 2001 the three sites became one consolidated organization - The International Institute of New England.
