Help with GBNCC 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.

About the organization: The goal of the Greater Boston Nazarene Compassionate Center (GBNCC) is to provide relief and opportunity to the most vulnerable, distressed and underprivileged, undeserved, under-represented people of the greater Boston area, with a particular emphasis on the Haitian community, immigrants and youth in Mattapan, Dorchester and vicinity. 

In partnership with the Greater Boston Food Bank, Greater Boston Nazarene Compassion Center (GBNCC), distributes more than 7,000 pounds of food each week to families in need. This partnership allows for the food pantry to serve over 3,600 community members monthly in the Greater Boston area.

Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, volunteers will unload food donations from the delivery truck to stock the pantry. Note: this project involves lifting 30-50lbs and volunteers may need to work with a partner to carry heavy boxes.

Wednesday and Friday mornings, volunteers will support the pantry by breaking down boxes and distributing food to individuals and families. 

GBNCC has some masks and gloves in supply but volunteers are encouraged to bring their own.
