Help Load and Unload Food Donations for Holy Tabernacle 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.

Help Holy Tabernacle Church get food donations for their weekly food pantry! They need volunteer support to load food donations into their truck at Greater Boston Food Bank and then unload the food at their church in Dorchester.

Please note: This project takes place in two locations. The first shift is for GBFB (South Boston) and the second is at the church pantry in Dorchester. Volunteers are welcome to sign up for both shifts but will need to provide their own transportation between sites. This is a physical project and volunteers will be asked to lift boxes of food donations.

About the organization: As a community agency Holy Tabernacle Church Food Pantry combats hunger and poverty by tackling their causes and effects that close the window of opportunity and the threat of hunger to a society in the 21st century. Our goal is to offer assistance to the citizens of our communities by providing a consistent, safe supply of quality, nutritious foods and supplies to our clients.
