How to Help : Volunteer

Volunteers play a critical role in ending hunger by giving their time and talent to support The Greater Boston Food Bank. Last year, more than 25,000 volunteers worked a total of 62,000 hours, a contribution worth more than $1,000,000.

Most volunteers work in our warehouse, inspecting, sorting, and packing food and grocery products. While a few tasks require the ability to lift a 30-pound box, most tasks require the ability to stand and inspect products for 2 - 3 hours. We can take individuals and groups of up to 50 people per shift. Groups of five or more people must be scheduled ahead of time.
