Individual Volunteering

We rely on our volunteers.

As one of Boston’s largest volunteer programs, we welcome volunteers to prepare meals in our kitchen, deliver meals to our clients, and help with our fundraising efforts and special events.

Volunteers are needed Monday – Friday 8am-8pm and Saturdays 9am-12pm and 1pm-3:30pm. We can accommodate up to groups of 20 for each shift. Hours are flexible but there is minimum requirement of a 2-hour shift.
