Sort Donations at Daily Table
Tuesday, January 9th | 5:30 PM- 8:00 PM

Daily Table receives donations of surplus, excess produce that must be sorted and organized for quality assurance. Volunteers will sort through donations and triage produce for use in the commissary kitchen, for sale on the floor, and for composting. Our business model of selling produce and grocery items in addition to prepared meals leaves us with many possible uses for food, but also requires careful hands-on processing. Volunteers may also help in the kitchen with food preparation, packaging, and labeling, or preparing and distributing samples in our engagement zone. Plan to be busy and on your feet!
Volunteers will help to address the wastefulness of our food system, and will be actively contributing to increasing food security and improving diets in Boston.

Organize the Supply Closet at TechBoston
Wednesday, January 10th | 1:00 PM- 3:00 PM

Help TechBoston Academy start off the new year with a clean and organize supply closet! We're looking for seven volunteers to assist in moving boxes, sorting supplies and organizing shelves for this incredible BPS School in Dorchester. Volunteers should come prepared for a bit of dust and should be able to lift 10-15 lbs comfortably.

TechBoston Academy (TBA) is a Boston public school that is committed to providing students with a nurturing and supportive social environment, and a rigorous college preparatory curriculum. Students at TBA have the opportunity to use technology to help them more fully engage with the curriculum and to become active participants in both their own education, and within their own communities.
