With three locations in Brookline, the Brookline Food Pantry (BFP) serves over 700 needy households each week, providing fresh produce, meat and dairy as well as household staples. They also serve over 500 students with food bags to take home from school each weekend and deliver food to clients who cannot get to them.

With clients coming to BFP in record numbers since the pandemic began, they always need additional volunteers and hope you will consider volunteering and telling family, friends, and neighbors about the opportunity to help. Potential volunteers can learn more and connect with them here.

They are also seeking a full-time Inventory Manager to play a key operational role and would appreciate your sharing this opportunity with family, friends and neighbors. In addition to managing Pantry inventory and assisting with daily operations, this role includes driving food between locations and lifting boxes up to 50 lbs.
