Opportunity Details

Distribute Food at East End House Pantry


The health and safety of our volunteers, Volunteer Leaders, and the people we serve is our top priority. We are working with our Community Partners to ensure that state & city guidance is followed to slow the spread of COVID-19. Read about our Safety Requirements.

Volunteers set up and clean up the pantry space, help receive weekly produce donations, and assist clients as they choose their own groceries from East End House’s available fresh produce and shelf-stable foods. After the pantry is over, volunteers also help set-up grocery bags for senior citizens or families in East End House, depending on the day.
 
People skills are a must for this opportunity! Their distribution is also an ideal time to employ or practice language skills - particularly Haitian Creole, Portuguese, and Spanish. Volunteers should be able to comfortably lift a minimum of 20 lbs, though we are happy to make reasonable accommodations.

About the East End House Pantry: The East End House Emergency Food Pantry serves residents throughout the Boston area, primarily from East Cambridge. They support over 300 families per month by offering healthy fresh and shelf-stable foods in a dignified setting. By increasing access to good food, they promote the flourishing and achievement of children from low-income families. They receive most of their food from the Greater Boston Food Bank, Food for Free, and Lovin' Spoonfuls. In addition, they receive donations from local food drives and individuals in the community.

T-accessibility & parking: Kendall/MIT (Red Line), Lechmere (Green Line), metered street parking
