Join the Boston Atheists and the Secular Society of MIT at the Greater Boston Food Bank! This is another great opportunity where we can show that a secular worldview is generous, civic-minded, and altruistic.
Project: Volunteers will inspect, sort, and pack donated grocery products that are then distributed to hunger relief agencies.
Where: The Greater Boston Food Bank, 70 South Bay Avenue, Boston. The Food Bank is about a 15 minute walk from the Red Line (from Andrew station). http://www.gbfb.org/contact/contact.php
Requirements: The age requirement for all volunteers is 16 and older. We have a CLOSED TOE SHOE POLICY (no sandals or flip flops) as we are a working warehouse, and please communicate this to your group as those wearing open-toed shoes will not be allowed to volunteer. Volunteers will want to wear clothes they do not mind getting dirty. Because of the machinery in our new sorting area, we require NO LOOSE CLOTHING OR ITEMS that could be caught in the conveyer belts. This would include untucked shirts, wide sleeves, jewelry including bracelets or long necklaces. LONG HAIR must be tied back or contained in a hat.
