Review for Community Servings, Jamaica Plain, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

There's no place I would rather be on a Saturday than in the Community Servings kitchen, helping to chop vegetables, package meals, ladle soup into containers, or assist with any of the other kitchen tasks that need to get done in order to make sure that Community Servings' 750 clients get fed that week. No matter what task I'm performing, I always feel useful and valued as a volunteer. More than that, though, I feel welcome. The people at Community Servings have become like a second family to me. There is such a feeling of positive energy and good will at CS, and I always leave there smiling. Not only am I doing something good for the community, but I feel like something good is being done for me. I cannot recommend this place enough!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the difference that these meals make in the lives of their clients. It is so moving to hear stories of families who have really benefited from receiving these meals.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

change nothing! This place is extremely efficient and well-run. No complaints.

Would you volunteer for this group again?


For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?


Did the organization use your time wisely?

Very Well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?


Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I have made a ton of new friends - we're like a family now! We see each other outside of Community Servings all the time and have become a great support network.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Volunteer & I help prepare meals for clients with critical illnesses. This includes performing a variety of kitchen tasks, including peeling and chopping vegetables, packing food, bagging meals, etc.
