Donation Sorting and Kitchen Help at Daily Table

Daily Table is a not-for-profit retail store that offers the community a variety of tasty, convenient, and affordable foods. They believe that wholesome, delicious, and affordable food should be available to all and are on a mission to help communities make great choices around food.

Daily Table receives donations of surplus healthy food from a large network of growers, supermarkets, manufacturers, and other suppliers that must be sorted and organized for quality assurance. Volunteers will sort through donations and triage produce for use in the commissary kitchen, for sale on the floor, and for composting. Daily Table's business model of selling produce and grocery items in addition to prepared meals leaves many possible uses for food, but also requires careful hands-on processing. Volunteers may also help in the kitchen with food preparation, packaging, and labeling, or preparing and distributing samples in our engagement zone. Plan to be busy and on your feet! 

Volunteers will help to address the wastefulness of our food system, and will be actively contributing to increasing food security and improving diets in Boston.
