Volunteer Shifts Return!

Beginning on June 15, we will be opening up our volunteer shifts to a limited number of volunteers each day.  While the continuing COVID Crisis prevents us from having our usual, robust volunteer cohort each day, we will be able to have up to six volunteers each day.  Volunteers can choose Tuesdays and Thursdays, when we are prepping for the other days and there are no diners in the building, if they are concerned about being exposed to so many people during meal distribution.  Tasks for volunteers include food prep, cooking, packaging, dish washing, interacting with the customers that come through the line on MWF, helping track the number of people and meals each day, and cleaning up.  If you are interested in volunteering, please call Kim at 413-664-7378 or e-mail her at [email protected] to set up a time to learn more about the opportunity currently available.

BFP Volunteer

While we have some great volunteers, the Berkshire Food Project still has various jobs for volunteers to fill. Among the most needed are for dishwashers, food preparers, and cleaners. Give one or two hours a week or more if you wish. The BFP operates from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.

How you helpOn any day of the week, we rely on volunteers. We could not do what we do without their consistent help.
About usThe Berkshire Food Project began its operations on a twice-weekly basis in January 1987. Its initial funds came from a "meatless meal" program at Williams College. For each student who was willing to forgo meat once a month, the College Dining Services donated (and still does donate) one dollar to the BFP. The BFP has grown from providing three meals each week in 1987 to now serving five days a week. Our meals are cooked from scratch and often use local ingredients.
