Boston Area Gleaners Volunteer Opportunities
Agency Name: Boston Area Gleaners
Commitment: Each shift is three hours
Description:

Boston Area Gleaners works with partner farms and frontline agencies across Eastern Massachusetts to get farm-fresh produce to residents facing food insecurity. We collaborate with volunteers to sort, pick, and pack food for distribution to pantries, meal programs, and food banks in the region. We host volunteer trips regularly throughout the year, harvesting, packing and sorting food for distribution. To learn more about our volunteering opportunities and sign up, check out our website at https://www.bostonareagleaners.org/volunteer.html. Once you are signed up as a volunteer, information about trips is posted weekly and you are able to sign up for as many trips as you would like. Most trips are 3 hours (not including travel), and are usually 9am-12pm or 1pm-4pm on weekdays, or at various times on weekends. Minor volunteers are required to submit a signed Minor Volunteer Waiver (picture or scan) to outreach@bostonareagleaners.org if they would like to volunteer without a guardian present. 

Days/Times Needed: 9am-12pm or 1pm-4pm on weekdays, or at various times on weekends
