Mobile Pantry Distribution with the Greater Boston Food Bank in Lawrence

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 mobile 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.

Help suppoort one of Greater Boston Food Bank's Mobile Markets! Mobile Markets enable GBFB to deliver high-quality, perishable food directly to partner sites in order to reach isolated communities and populations at high-risk of hunger. This food is brought in on our refrigerated trucks and set up on tables in the style of a farmer's market. Clients 'shop' at each table, choosing from a diverse selection of fresh produce, dairy products, and high-protein items.

About the project: Volunteers play an integral role in the program, helping with all aspects of unloading, set up, distribution, and breakdown. Volunteers play an integral role in the program, helping with all aspects of the market including unloading food, set up, distribution, and breakdown.
