As food insecurity has grown in Greater Boston over the last few years, the need for Family Table has too. Our numbers have increased as we are providing emergency food for many people impacted by ongoing financial hardship.
Family Table volunteers are needed to:
- Pack and deliver groceries on Sunday distribution days. Children are welcome. See our upcoming distribution dates in the chart below.
- Assist during the week in Waltham — On Tuesdays, volunteers help to distribute perishable items, restock, and support the clients at our weekly Marketplace distribution. On Thursdays, volunteers neatly prepack bags, which will be delivered on Sundays. Volunteers must be at least 17 years old or age 14+ with a guardian.
Sign Up to Volunteer:

If you have questions, contact Family Table at email@example.com or 781-693-5593.
All volunteers age 18 and older must undergo a JF&CS CORI (Criminal Offender Record Information) background check. This documentation is due two weeks prior to the distribution.
Individuals may not participate if they are feeling unwell, have any symptoms, or are positive for COVID-19. Vaccination is encouraged but not required.
