Individual Volunteering

Volunteering During COVID-19

Kitchen volunteer shifts are currently Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.

Volunteers can expect to help with tasks like peeling and chopping vegetables, portioning and packaging food, and packing meal bags for delivery to our clients.

All volunteers must sanitize their hands and take their temperature when entering our building. If you have a temperature of 100.3°F or more, you will be asked to return home. Before entering our kitchen, you’ll wash your hands, and put on a hat or hairnet, apron, and protective gloves.

All kitchen volunteers are required to wear a close-fitting cotton cloth or paper face mask during their shift. The mask must be worn at all times, covering both the nose and mouth. 

Due to a limited supply, we ask that you bring a clean face mask with you. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided for you on-site.

Please note as of Monday, March 22, all visitors entering Massachusetts, including returning residents, must quarantine for 10 days upon their arrival.

Travelers/Residents who are fully vaccinated are exempt from this restriction.

Visit for information about exemptions to this quarantine advisory.
