Fenway Cares is a collective of Fenway non-profit organizations that came together in March 2020 to help Fenway residents in need. Fenway Cares distributes around 300 free food bags twice a month in two locations in the East and West Fens every 2 week on Wednesday afternoons.
Volunteers will arrive between 2 – 2:30PM. Volunteers help unload the food from trucks, pack each bag with PPE and flyers, then coordinate roles for distribution. At the East Fenway location, we have teams of 2 go on foot for delivery, with around 1-4 addresses that require car delivery. At both locations, volunteers will take roles from helping with those who are using walkers and wheelchairs to load bags, to those who are distributing from the table, and others who are replenishing from the reserves. We then all work together to pack up the boxes and tables at the end of the event. We need roughly 12 – 15 volunteers for each distribution.
This sign up form is for both the East and West Fens food distribution locations. Please indicate which site you would prefer to be placed. EAST is at Symphony Community Park at 39 Edgerly Road in the Fenway and WEST is at the Fenway Community Center. NOTE: Volunteers *may* be placed at either location based on need for the date(s) chosen.
