Family Table Distribution Day Schedule

JF&CS Family Table continues to serve our food pantry clients during the COVID-19 pandemic. In the past few months, our numbers have increased as we are providing emergency food for many people impacted by the ongoing health crisis.

Volunteers are needed to:

  • Pack and deliver groceries on Sunday distribution days. Children are welcome. See our upcoming distribution dates in the chart below. 
  • Pack bags — Due to the expanded demand during the pandemic, we need help carefully pre-packing hundreds of bags on weekdays. Adults are preferred but a supervised child, age 12+, may participate (due to space limitations, only one volunteer under 17 years old per family).
  • Assist during Marketplace —Volunteers help with set up, packing groceries, and distributing them during our curbside pick-up distribution for our clients on one Tuesday and/or Wednesday each month. Volunteers must be at least 17 years old. A supervised child, age 14+, may participate (due to space limitations, only one volunteer under 17 years old per family).

Strict social distancing guidelines are in place. See our Waltham distribution plan for November - February. 

Based on state and federal guidance, we cannot accept volunteers who have an underlying health condition, are feeling unwell, have come in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 (or an ill person whose COVID-19 status is in question), or are self-quarantining. 

Sign Up to Volunteer: If you would like to help, please fill out this application form. If you have questions, contact Family Table at or 781-693-5593. 

All volunteers 18 and older must undergo a CORI (Criminal Offender Record Information) background check processed by JF&CS and completed approximately two weeks prior to the distribution.
