We couldn’t serve our community without the help of our volunteers. We have a variety of tasks and time slots available and welcome groups and individuals to join us in providing food to our community. At the beginning of every month, we send out a volunteer sign-up form with all volunteer opportunities for the month.

Volunteer Opportunities

Food Truck Unloading

On the first Tuesday of every month at 3:30pm, we need assistance unloading the delivery of food from the Food Bank. This is a great opportunity for groups and typically lasts about two hours.

Food Basket Making

On the second and fourth Friday of the month from 1pm to 3pm, we need assistance to prepare our food baskets for our food basket distribution. This is a great shift for people who like to organize because we make up about 75 to 100 baskets of dry goods and prep our perishable items for distribution.

Food Basket Distribution

On the second and fourth Saturdays of the month from 8:30am to 1:30pm, Allston Brighton Food Pantry needs help distributing our food baskets to those in need in our community. Volunteer duties include greeting people, checking them in, helping to manage the flow of the distribution, assisting in our thrift shop,and making additional baskets as needed.

Community Supper

On Wednesdays, we have a variety of opportunities for volunteers. Volunteers can prepare food for our community supper, give out emergency groceries, and clean up pantry spaces. We welcome volunteers for any amount of time they are available to help from 10am to 7pm.

Dessert Donation and Drop-Off

We welcome community members to drop off desserts to be distributed during Community Dinners on Wednesday evenings. Call for scheduled drop off 617-919-6498.
