HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

At Community Servings, we believe in the power of food to heal and most importantly to bring hope to our clients who are dealing with critical or chronic illnesses. You will be preparing and packaging the food in our industrial kitchen which will then go out and be delivered to our clients. You will be directly helping those without access to healthy food, and who are too sick to go to the store or make food for their families. 

DESCRIPTION

Do you like working in a kitchen, being around lots of people and working with food? If you are 13 years or older, you can volunteer to work in our kitchen. Volunteers work to prepare and package over 2500 meals per day! It is busy, fast paced, and tons of fun! 


ITEMS NEEDED

1. Shoes that completely cover and protect the feet (socks and sneakers preferred)

2. Pants without rips or tears

3. A long sleeved shirt


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

You must be 13 or older to volunteer. If under 18, you must have a parent, guardian, or chaperone sign the waiver on your behalf.


NEXT STEPS

Sign up for a volunteer shift using Community Servings' online calendar at https://www.servings.org/volunteer_calendar/.  We offer weekday volunteer shifts from 9-12pm, 1-4pm, 4-6pm and 6-8pm, and Saturday shifts from 9-12pm and 1-3:30pm.

Volunteers under the age of 18 must have their parent/guardian/chaperone submit a volunteer waiver prior to their first time volunteering.  New volunteers will receive a 20 minute orientation at the start of their first volunteer shift.  Volunteers must be 13 or older.

If you have any questions, please contact Nate Ross at (617) 522-7777 X228 or by email at nross@servings.org.
