Typical shopping experience at NEFP!


The Northeast Emergency Food Program (NEFP) serves 800 low-income families every month with a shopping cart full of fresh produce, meat, basic dry goods, as well as clothes and personal care items. Volunteers needed to sort food donations and stock shelves in the morning, and to shop with clients in the afternoon.

We are set up like a grocery store, and have clients shop around themselves, choosing what to take. We believe this method upholds the dignity of our clients and respects their cultural, religious, and personal dietary restrictions.

We are open Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Morning shift from 9am - 12pm, afternoon shift from 1pm - 4:30pm.

We have volunteer opportunities primarily on Thursdays and Saturdays we are hoping to fill. Thursday we have an afternoon shift from 1-4:30 and Saturdays we have both a morning (9-12:30) and an afternoon shift (1-4:30) available! You work most directly with the clients during the afternoon shift, while the morning is mostly stocking and organizing.

Great way to earn community service hours for school.
