BWFH Staff Volunteer Opportunities
Community Servings is a not-for-profit food and nutrition program in Jamaica Plain providing services throughout Massachusetts and in Rhode Island to individuals and families living with critical and chronic illnesses. They give their clients, their dependent family members and caregivers appealing, nutritious meals, and send the message to those in greatest need that someone cares.
BWFH staff are invited to volunteer at one of the staff nights coordinated monthly at Community Servings. Staff will prepare meals for critically ill individuals and their families. Volunteers are needed for a three hour shift of peeling, chopping and packaging meals for Community Servings’ clients. Volunteers must be 13 years or older and register in advance. Individuals or groups welcome!
To learn more or to register for an upcoming BWFH Staff Volunteer Night, contact Katie Plante.
