JOIN FELLOW SLOW FOOD ENTHUSIASTS in the kitchen at Community Servings where we'll prepare and package meals for their clients, their dependent families, and caregivers. Appealing, nutritious meals send the message to those in greatest need that someone cares.

Since its founding in 1990, Community Servings has delivered over 7 million nutritionally tailored meals in the region. They rely on volunteers to help prep and package 2,600 nutritious, made-from-scratch meals each day. Join us and make a meaningful difference in someone’s life while having fun, too!

Organizer Slow Food Boston

Organizer of COMMUNITY SERVINGS KITCHEN VOLUNTEER NIGHT + SLOW FOOD SPRING SOCIAL

Slow Food Boston is a local chapter of an international food movement that supports “good, clean, fair food for all." We believe in building communities around the sensory experiences associated with food in order to create and sustain healthier relationships, environments, and citizenry. We seek to celebrate the diversity of food traditions to discover the bonds we share across cultures, continents, and kitchen tables. Every day we harness individual expertise and communal passion to work towards a better for system for all. And at the end of each, we don't think there's anything better than good food and good drinks shared with good friends. Here at Slow Food Boston we work to promote foods grown, produced, and prepared here in Massachusetts and throughout New England. We seek to raise awareness of sustainability issues and to host events that are just plain fun.

Please consider joining us today!
