Ending hunger in Eastern Massachusetts will take us all working together. Join our compassionate volunteers who are the heartbeat of The Greater Boston Food Bank.

**We are booked for capacity groups (up to 15) through to January 2024.**  All dates prior are booked.

Volunteers at The Greater Boston Food Bank play a critical role in helping to end hunger in Eastern Massachusetts, and their role is even more critical now given the COVID-19 crisis. We are currently accepting 15 per group weekdays and 10 per group on Saturdays, per shift.  Individuals and small groups may apply.
