Support About Fresh's Open Air Market - South Boston

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 open air market 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: About Fresh works to radically impact community health by celebrating food culture and getting fresh food to people that need it the most. A transformed bus serves as a mobile market full of fresh produce. The truck drives to a variety of neighborhoods around Boston to deliver fresh, healthy food to people who need it! Fresh truck operates weekly and open air markets. 

Fresh Truck has modified their weekly markets to provide fresh and affordable fruits and vegetables while keeping our staff, volunteers, and shoppers safe during the COVID-19 crisis. The redesigned Fresh Truck Markets bring fresh food close to customers and increases opportunities for individuals to use SNAP/HIP. During these markets, shoppers have the option of purchasing tailored bags of produce at low-cost.

Volunteers will directly support the Fresh Truck Open Air Market by:

Monitor the flow of the line
Take order(s) from shoppers
Fill shopper orders on the bus
Process shopper payment
Clean/Sanitize equipment & materials
