People Helping People Job Descriptions

Volunteer Drivers for the F.I.S.H. program (Friends in Service to Humanity) – (Adults only)

There are some pantry clients who need a ride to and from the Food Pantry on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings, between 12-1:30, (and 2nd Wednesday & 4th Tuesday evenings between 5:45 – 7:45 pm).

If you are interested in helping with this, please call 781-270-1961 to register with the F.I.S.H. Program through the Burlington Youth & Family Services.

If you wish, you can tell the BYFS that you want to drive for the Food Pantry only (though, they could use more driver volunteers for medical appointments too).

Saturday Sorting – MS & HS students welcome!

If you are not available to volunteer during the week, this is a great opportunity. On the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month from 9-10:30 am volunteers date-check and sort donated food, and also stock the shelves. This is a good job for teens as well as working adults. During the holidays, additional days and times may be added. Attention to detail is very important.  PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL us if you would like to be added to the schedule for a Saturday Sort.  Occasionally, we have too many people, and it gets over-crowded.

Sign up with us!

Fill out the Volunteer Form or email us with questions at burlingtonpantry@gmail.com.
