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.
The Leitrim Society of Boston have organized a day to help out at the food bank on Saturday April 26th, 2014 from 1.00 p.m. to 3.30 p.m. Places are extremely limited so if you are interested in registering your participation please contact Mary McDermott (marypmcdermott@
Volunteers work in our warehouse, inspecting, sorting, and repacking donated food and grocery products.
Upon arrival, the team will orient you to The Greater Boston Food Bank and its services, and then you will be trained for your project. At the end of the shift, we can gather everyone back together to discuss impact, answer questions and take a group photo.
Some volunteers load boxes onto conveyer belts, some inspect or sort products, and others check and label boxes. While a few of these tasks require the ability to lift a 30 pound box, most tasks require only that a volunteer stand and inspect products for a few hours. Please remember to wear closed-toed shoes for your shift (no sandals or flip flops).
Your assistance is a crucial part of helping to End Hunger Here!
