Join a small group of Duke alumni for a day of service at the Greater Boston Food Bank.

All volunteers will be trained at the beginning of the shift, after which we will inspect, sort and package donated grocery products to be distributed to hunger relief agencies. Duke volunteers will work together as a team on an assembly line and may be working alongside other groups. A few tasks require the ability to lift up to 50lb boxes, but the majority of positions simply require that a volunteer can stand and inspect products for a few hours.

All volunteers must be 16 years of age and older regardless of parental permission or attendance. Any volunteer under 18 must be accompanied by an adult chaperone.
