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.

All volunteer visits must be scheduled ahead of time. First, complete the group request form or individual application and our Volunteer Team will get back to you with instructions for scheduling.
