Hunger is experienced every day in every community across the country. Volunteers play a critical role in ending hunger in the six towns we serve by giving their time and talent to support Loaves & Fishes. We welcome you to explore volunteer opportunities with Loaves & Fishes by attending a new volunteer information session.
Please note we DO have volunteer opportunities for students, however, we have an age requirement of 18 in order to participate in volunteer activities when clients are present.
Policy on Court-Ordered Community Service: Loaves & Fishes cannot accept volunteers who are seeking Court-Ordered Community Service. We apologize for any inconvenience.
New information sessions are held at our location, 234 Barnum Road, Devens. The FIRST WEDNESDAY EVENING OF THE MONTH AT 7:00 PM and the THIRD THURSDAY OF THE MONTH AT 9:30AM.
Please scroll through the calendar to the right and email Volunteer Coordinator at:firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for any of these events.
Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry depends entirely on volunteers! We always need help on days when we have open pantry sessions.
