About this Event

Join Volunteers Incorporating Black Excellence (VIBE) as we volunteer at The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) on Saturday, September 28th from 1:00pm-3:30pm. We will spend the afternoon inspecting, sorting, and packaging grocery items to be distributed.

About GBFB:

GBFB is the largest hunger-relief organization in New England and among the largest food banks in the country. Last year, we distributed nearly 62 million pounds of nutritious food to people who struggle to have enough to eat. We are committed to increasing our food distribution to provide three meals a day to every person in need in Eastern Massachusetts while supporting healthy lives and healthy communities

Additional Volunteering Information:

  • We will meet outside of the building at 12:55pm and walk in together. There will be a VIBE leader wearing a VIBE T-Shirt that will greet you.
  • Upon arrival, we will participate in an orientation about The Greater Boston Food Bank, review warehouse safety, and then be trained for our project.
  • At the end of the shift, they will gather everyone back together to discuss impact, answer questions, and offer additional ways to engage with their mission.
  • Wear closed-toe shoes and comfortable clothing
  • Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older. All volunteers under 18 require an adult chaperone.
  • Signing up means you have read and agree to the terms listed in the GBFB Volunteer Liability Waiver
