We rely on the generosity of individual volunteers and organized groups to help our kitchen team prepare the nutritious food our critically and chronically ill clients need to improve and maintain their health.

Every week, we prepare over 20,000 medically tailored meals for people and families across Massachusetts impacted by HIV/AIDS, cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and more.

We have kitchen volunteer shifts every weekday from 9-12pm, 1-4pm, and 4-7pm. We can accommodate roughly 30 volunteers in our kitchens at all times, including organized groups.

Once in the kitchen, you’ll help our team peel and chop veggies, portion soups, stews, and salads, and pack meal bags for our clients.

Kitchen volunteers must be age 13+, and all new volunteers will receive an orientation from our team before the start of their shift.

All volunteers must be fully vaccinated and wear a face mask when inside our building. Required attire includes pants covering the ankles, long-sleeve shirts, and close-toed shoes. Hairnets and aprons will be provided.
