Group Volunteering

Group volunteering is a great way for corporate teams to connect with the community and show their commitment to ending hunger across Eastern Massachusetts.

Volunteers social distancing**We are currently booking Groups for March 2023**  All dates prior are booked.

Volunteers at The Greater Boston Food Bank play a critical role in helping to end hunger. Now, more than ever, we need your support to help us sort and package food for distribution to hungry families across Eastern Massachusetts.

Groups who volunteer receive an educational, team-building experience while sorting and packing food for those in need.
