The Greater Boston Food Bank
Location: 70 South Bay Avenue, Boston

The Greater Boston Food Bank works passionately to end hunger across Eastern Massachusetts by providing our neighbors in need the healthy food and resources they need to thrive.

Volunteer tasks will focus on high need/critical projects like their Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) and Brown Bag boxes for seniors and additional food sorting projects.



Saturday, May 18 8:45am-noon
Led by Scott Forbes '81
Food Bank of the Rockies
Location: Main Warehouse 10700 E. 45th Avenue, Denver

Food Bank of the Rockies is the largest hunger relief organization in the Rocky Mountain region. They distribute upwards of 181,500 meals every day. But, for those in need, they provide more than just food. They give hope and open a future. Because when you can’t provide for your family today, it’s hard to even think about tomorrow.

Volunteers will work in two of three areas of the warehouse.

  1. Reclamation: sort, wipe and repackage incoming donations
  2. Distribution: pick orders and load pallets for outgoing partners
  3. Senior area: build and pack food orders



Saturday, May 18, 9-11am
Led by Inder Majumdar '12
Feed My Starving Children
Location: 740 Wiley Farm Court, Schaumburg, Illinois
