Our meal service is located in Back Bay Boston and our services are open to all individuals who find themselves in need of a warm meal.

Board members are encouraged to volunteer at our meal service on a semi-regular basis, ranging from once monthly to once every few months. Board members are required to sign up to help at 2 events per year, which require 3-4 hours each. Board members are required to individually fundraise or contribute $500 per year.
