Are you interested in seeing a food rescue organization in action? Come volunteer with Food Link, a community organization that rescues fresh food, alleviates hunger, and contributes to environmental sustainability. Food Link collects high-quality fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy, bread and prepared food that would otherwise be wasted from 12 local grocery and prepared food stores.
Our team will be sorting food as well as cleaning and organizing the food pantry. This opportunity is available to volunteers ages 8 and older.

Project Bread funds 11 emergency food agencies in Cambridge. The Harvard Square Churches Meal Program is one of them! This meal program is a project of ten churches in Harvard Square. It began in June 1982 and has served a meal every week since then. Their staff has cumulative experience totaling 46 years with many volunteers serving the guests for 10 years or more.
Our team will be serving the meal restaurant style (taking the meal to the guests) and interacting with the guests. The meal program typically serves around 100 meals for the evening. After the meal service, we will be helping clean up.

Time: 5pm - 8pm
Location: Arlington Street Church, Boston
Come out on a Friday night and serve a warm meal with the Project Bread team. The Friday Night Supper Program (FNSP) serves approximately 150 meals every Friday to some of Boston's most vulnerable citizens, many of whom face a constant struggle not only for food but for understanding and friendship as well. This organization prides itself on providing nourishment both for the body through food and for the soul through dignity and respect.
FNSP relies on volunteers to bring a weekly meal to those in need. Volunteers give the program its strength and character and have been instrumental in ensuring the program runs every Friday!
