Volunteer with The Greater Boston Food Bank

Saturday, May 3, 2014 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM
- , Boston, MA

 

Description:

The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) is the largest hunger-relief organization in New England and among the largest food banks in the country. Last year, GBFB distributed almost 41 million pounds of food, enough to provide healthy meals to as many as 545,000 people. GBFB is committed to increasing our food distribution in 2013 to provide at least ONE MEAL A DAY to every person in need in eastern Massachusetts. Volunteers play a critical role in ending hunger by giving their time and talent to support The Greater Boston Food Bank. Most volunteers work in the GBFB warehouse, inspecting, sorting, and packing food and grocery products. Most tasks require the ability to stand and inspect products for 2 - 3 hours. Volunteers are trained in food safety at the beginning of the shift. Come join members of the New Lawyers Section as we partner with other volunteers to help “End Hunger Here.” This event will be an excellent opportunity to enjoy the company of fellow lawyers in a non-professional setting. Information for volunteers:

1.) Closed-toe shoe policy.
2.) Please wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty.
3.) No loose clothing or items that be caught in a conveyor belt.
4.) Long hair must be tied back or contained in a hat.
5.) Parking lot diagonally across the street from the GBFB building.

GBFB requires list of volunteers prior to event. Must register with BBA to participate.
