Food Distribution for BPS - Blackstone Elementary School

Boston Public Schools are providing free breakfast and lunch to students around the city during school closures due to COVID-19. Volunteers are needed to support food distribution at each of these sites between 7:30 am-12:30 pm Monday - Friday. 

This opportunity is for Blackston Elementary School (South End).

Volunteers will be asked to do some of the following: 
- Replenish food to serving tables (with gloves on).
- Help with moving food serving lines along. 
- Set up and distribute educational packets on tables. 
- Greet families and provide directions. 
- Set up tables and sanitize them.  
- Ensure that milk is placed in insulated bags or on ice sheets.
- Tally meals served. 

Please sign up below for the shift you are available! We ask all volunteers to sign up using the form below so that we can accurately track volunteer numbers and ensure enough people are scheduled to help. If you sign up and then find you are unable to volunteer, please log into your Boston Cares account and remove yourself from the project via the "my account" page so that another volunteer can take your place. 

The health and safety of everyone is our first priority. We ask volunteers to be aware of their own health before signing up to help. If you do not feel well or have a temperature, please do NOT sign up to volunteer.  We will take all appropriate measures to ensure that both volunteers and students and families are safe throughout distribution by providing volunteers with gloves, hand sanitizer, and other safety measures.
