Stock Donations at the East End House Food 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.

Due to the COVID-19 public health crisis, there has been an increase in individuals and families visiting the food pantry and a higher than normal need for volunteers to support. This volunteer opportunity is open to the community and any individual with a Boston Cares account and who follows our safety requirements may sign up. Having attended a Boston Cares orientation is not required. Please e-mail volunteers@bostoncares.org if you have questions.

Volunteers will help receive food donations from the Greater Boston Food Bank and food rescues and restock the shelves at the East End House Food Pantry. This is an active project! Volunteers should be able to comfortably lift 30-50 lbs.
  • T-accessible: Red Line (Kendall/MIT) or Green Line (Lechemere) 
About the East End House:
The East End House Emergency Food Pantry serves residents throughout the Boston area, primarily from East Cambridge. We support over 300 families per month by offering healthy fresh and shelf-stable foods in a dignified setting. By increasing access to good food, we promote the flourishing and achievement of children from low-income families. We receive most of our food from the Greater Boston Food Bank, Food for Free, and Lovin' Spoonfuls. In addition, we receive donations from local food drives and individuals in the community.
