Community Servings is a not-for-profit food and nutrition program providing services throughout Massachusetts to individuals and families living with critical and chronic illnesses. They give clients, their dependent families, and caregivers appealing, nutritious meals, and send the message to those in greatest need that someone cares. Their goals are to help clients maintain their health and dignity and preserve the integrity of their families through free, culturally appropriate, home-delivered meals, nutrition education, and other community programs.
Volunteers will be preparing and packaging meals for critically ill clients.
This is anything from washing, peeling and chopping vegetables to packaging soups, salads, entrees and desserts. All new kitchen volunteers will be given an orientation during the first half hour of the shift where the Community Servings staff will go over who they are, what they do, the impact of their service and safe food-handling policies.
Please ensure you arrive in time for the orientation, which is required to be able to volunteer! Community Servings is minutes away from the Stony Brook station on the MBTA Orange Line. There is also a small parking lot available.
