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.

A not-for-profit food and nutrition program providing services throughout Massachusetts and in Rhode Island, Community Servings provides made-from-scratch meals to homebound and critically ill individuals and their families. 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!

VOLUNTEERS MUST:

  • Be at least 13 years old

  • Wear long sleeves

  • Shoes that completely cover the foot (like sneakers)

  • Long pants without rips or tears

  • Be 100% healthy to volunteer!

  • Arrive at time of shift for a mandatory orientation. If you miss the orientation, you will not be allowed to volunteer in the kitchen.
