Volunteer at the Greater Boston Food Bank, April 4

The Business Law Section and Young Lawyers Division are sponsoring an evening of volunteering at The Greater Boston Food Bank on Wednesday, April 4 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. The Food Bank is located on 70 South Bay Ave., Roxbury near the South Bay Shopping Center, right of the Expressway.

Volunteers will inspect, sort and repack donated grocery products that are then distributed to hunger relief agencies. All volunteers are trained in food safety at the beginning of the shift. Volunteers work together as a team on an assembly line with some volunteers loading boxes onto conveyer belts, other volunteers inspecting and sorting products, and others checking and labeling boxes. A few of these "jobs" require the ability to lift a box of about 30 pounds, but the majority of positions simply require that a volunteer can stand and inspect products for a few hours. Volunteers with special needs or requests can be accommodated with advance notice.

The Business Law section has volunteered at the Food Bank in the past and all who attended enjoyed their time "on the line."

If you are interested in participating, contact John Pregmon at [e-mail jpregmon] by Friday, March 23.
