MLK Day of Service at the Greater Boston Food Bank

January 20, 2024

Boston Platoon

Event overview

Join the Boston Platoon in supporting the Greater Boston Food Bank for Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. We’ll be working in the warehouse, inspecting, sorting, and repacking donated food and grocery products. Some volunteers load boxes onto conveyor belts, some inspect or sort products, and others check and label boxes. While a few of these tasks require the ability to lift a 30 pound box, most tasks require a volunteer to stand and inspect products or package boxes.

Please remember to wear closed-toed shoes for your shift (no sandals or flip flops).
