Distribute Food at East End House Pantry

Volunteers set up/clean up the pantry space, help receive weekly produce donations, and assist clients as they choose their own groceries from our available fresh produce and shelf-stable foods. After pantry is over, volunteers also help set-up grocery bags for senior citizens or families in the EEH, depending on the day. People skills are a must for this opportunity! Our distribution is also an ideal time to employ or practice language skills - particularly Haitian Creole, Portuguese, and Spanish. Volunteers should be able to comfortably lift a minimum of 20 lbs, though we are happy to make reasonable accommodations.

About the East End House Pantry: The East End House Emergency Food Pantry serves residents throughout the Boston area, primarily from East Cambridge. We support over 300 families per month by offering healthy fresh and shelf-stable foods in a dignified setting. By increasing access to good food, we promote the flourishing and achievement of children from low-income families. We receive most of our food from the Greater Boston Food Bank, Food for Free, and Lovin' Spoonfuls. In addition, we receive donations from local food drives and individuals in the community.
