Community Servings is an amazing organization. When I first moved to Boston, I came in a couple times to volunteer and almost immediately the staff there took me in like family! The staff are warm, generous, kind people who are truly passionate about providing the best quality services to their clients and community. The kitchen staff, especially the "Great Chef" Milford and Manager Tony, have always taken the time to teach me about the kitchen and share a quick laugh. The staff have created a positive and comforting environment that always puts a smile on my face. Generally, I have helped prepare and package meals as well as volunteered with special fundraising events. This year I was able to participate in their fundraiser Pie In the Sky. I was able to help prepare pies that would be used in the fundraiser- best experience to date! Overall, I am impressed by how "lean" the organization is (90 cents for every dollar goes to services for clients) and how they are able to deliver to such a wide area (from Lawrence to Brockton.) I have and will continue to encourage others to volunteer (especially on Saturdays!) because every experience I have had with Community Servings has been fun and fulfilling.
