Prepare, Pack, and Distribute Meals for My Brother's Table


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 this organization 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 this project: My Brother's Table is a soup kitchen in Lynn that serves free meals to anyone who comes to our door in need. We are open 365 days a year and believe hospitality is just as important as the food we serve. We served over 204,000 free meals last year alone. Everyone is welcome at My Brother's Table. Volunteers help us with a variety of tasks every day of the year, but right now we need volunteers to help us prepare meals, package and distribute the meals to go. Volunteers are welcome to sign-up for multiple shifts on the same day if their schedule allows.

Serving meals during COVID-19: My Brother's Table has switched to all meals to go and we are only allowing a few guests into our large dining room at a time to allow for appropriate distancing. We have extended our hours to minimize the lines and rush of guests. As a licensed restaurant we follow all safe food handling practices which include: constant sanitation of surfaces, hand sanitizing stations, hand washing sink, hats and gloves, and a prohibition against sick staff from entering the workplace. We have changed the way our guests enter our dining room and the way that we distribute the meals to ensure that we are following CDC social distancing recommendations. Volunteers will be helping us prepare meals, package meals in to go containers and distribute those meals to our guests. We provide gloves and a place to wash hands frequently and we do have several reusable masks that we wash after every use if you need one. Please bring and plan to wear your own mask or face covering if you have oneParking and directions: this project takes place in Lynn, MA. There is parking onsite. Please sign up for a shift below and you will be sent the exact address. 

Youth-Friendly: Ages 10 and up welcome (children aged 10-11 must be accompanied by an adult).
