Time: 9:30am - 12:30pm Fieldwork
Location: The Food Project's Urban Farm in Dorchester
With over 70 acres of urban and suburban farmland, The Food Project has been at the forefront of building and managing growing spaces for residents in food-insecure neighborhoods and increasing access to affordable, fresh, healthy food through SNAP-accessible farmers markets. The hallmark of this program is the focus on identifying and transforming a new generation of leaders by providing deeply meaningful work for over 120 teenagers each year and placing them in increasingly responsible roles. In addition, The Food Project strives to donate 25% of their harvest each season to hunger relief organizations, providing hundreds of thousands of meals to those in need.
We would love to see you in Dorchester at this incredible program providing healthy food to those in need. The farm is accessible by car and public transportation. For full details on this volunteer day, click here.
Date: Wednesday, November 1, 2017
Time: 5:30pm - 8pm
Location: The Paulist Center, 5 Park St., Boston
Join us at the place that started it all! The Paulist Center is the iconic location where the Walk for Hunger first began. In 1969, Patrick Hughes, a Paulist priest, was deeply concerned about the hunger crisis in local communities and began generating support for a walk. That was the beginning of the Walk for Hunger, which ultimately sprouted into Project Bread.
Today, The Paulist Center still welcomes the hungry and homeless for a hot, nutritious, tasty meal each Wednesday at their Wednesday Night Supper Club. We will be setting up and serving dinner.
Date: Saturday, December 2, 2017
Time: 1pm - 3pm
Location: Food Link at the Arlington Food Pantry
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.
