Description

North Shore Volunteers Needed for "Free Farmer's Market"

Are you interested in helping to distribute fresh produce to seniors? We have a handful of wonderful volunteer opportunities from late July through mid-November. Details below.


Boston Area Gleaners on the North Shore distributes high-quality produce to food pantries and meal programs by working closely with local farmers and providing volunteer labor to harvest what would otherwise be plowed under. JF&CS Northshore Program Coordinator for Aging Well at Home has created a way to distribute produce and a relevant seasonal recipe to older adult residents in Salem.


This fun opportunity will consist of helping to set up a table with signage and produce, signing people in, and registering new participants. If you speak Spanish that is a huge plus, but not necessary! We would love folks who could be 'regulars,' but you can also come just one time.


Please contact volunteers@jfcsboston.org to sign up.
