Stock Food at the Elizabeth Peabody House Food Pantry

The Elizabeth Peabody House provides fresh produce, dairy products and dry goods to individuals and families of the community in need. The pantry functions as a small grocery store where members of the community can come once a month to get the food they need. They currently serve over 1,200 people with 2,400 grocery-filled bags each month!

For Monday Volunteers: During this volunteer opportunity, the EPH Food Pantry coordinator and volunteers travel via van to the Greater Boston Food Bank to pick up their weekly food order. 

Volunteers are asked to arrive at the Elizabeth Peabody House Food Pantry office building (275 Broadway, a pink house building) by 9:50am and leave with the coordinator by 10:00am. Activities include loading up and unloading the van followed by stocking the EPH pantry.

For Wednesday Volunteers: Please arrive at the Elizabeth Peabody House Food Pantry (277 Broadway) at  12:00pm. You will assist with stocking, organizing, and unloading deliveries to get the EPH pantry ready for distribution. 

The EPH food pantry coordinator is the acting volunteer leader for this Boston Cares volunteer opportunity.
