Young Leaders

Community Servings Young Leaders (or CSYL, pronounced “sizzle”) is a diverse group of passionate professionals in Boston who are dedicated to Community Servings’ mission.

We host CSYL volunteer nights in the kitchen, gather socially, and organize various fundraising & educational events (virtually and in-person) to explore nutrition, food policy, and more.

We welcome individuals in their 20s and 30s interested in volunteerism, philanthropy, and networking to join the Community Servings Young Leaders in raising funds and advancing the agency’s mission. Join us!

Upcoming Events

Virtual Farm to Fork Event –  Thursday, April 29th at 6 p.m.

Celebrate the beginning of spring with a night of fun, food, and community in our virtual edition of Farm to Fork. Grab a friend and get cooking in the comfort of your own kitchen as you follow along with our experienced registered dietitian nutritionists!

We’ll send you a list of what ingredients are required for the recipes so you can stock up, cook with us, and enjoy from home!

Tickets are a suggested donation of $15 and include access to the event, the ingredient list and recipe, and an entry into a raffle prize. All proceeds benefit Community Servings.

Traditionally, we host CSYL-specific kitchen volunteer shifts each month, but we’re adjusting to the restrictions based on social distancing guidelines this year. We’re planning to launch a virtual volunteer opportunity in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for that! Or, if you’re comfortable volunteering in person, learn more below.

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

Please review our COVID-19 Policy and Travel Updates prior to signing up for a kitchen volunteer shift.
