Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House (MFNH)

Food Pantry Helpers

Margaret Fuller House seeks volunteers to support their food pantry. Responsibilities may include a combination of unloading food deliveries, organizing and packing up produce for distribution, setting up food stations up for patrons to select from, and organizing the storage room. Volunteers may be invited to help just once, especially to try it the first time, but a regular commitment is strongly preferred. Wednesday afternoons (receiving deliveries) are especially critical. Groups larger than five people are asked to contact Food Pantry Coordinator Phoebe Heyman for scheduling.


For more information, please contact Phoebe Heyman at pheyman@margaretfullerhouse.org or call MFH at (617) 547-4680.
