How It Makes A Difference

Rescuers help bring food from our partners to a local unhoused shelter. For every six pounds you save, you feed five people. Volunteering less than one hour donates food for an average of 40 people.  No minimum time commitment is required: volunteer one-time, sporadically or on a recurring basis. Fulfill Community Service Hours: Documentation for proof of volunteering is available upon request. Safety guidelines are in place to ensure zero person-to-person contact. Go solo or as a team of family members, friends, co-workers, etc. Rescue via 2 feet, 2 wheels, 4 wheels, or MBTA Subway.
