We invite you to sign up to participate in community service along with other volunteers and Boston Rotarians at The Women's Lunch Place.
"A warm glow and sense of connection aren’t all you get from volunteering: It can improve your mental health and help you live longer too!"  Website:
Since 1982, thousands of Boston's poorest women have found refuge and welcome at the Women's Lunch Place. The Women's Lunch Place provides a safe, comfortable day time shelter, nutritious food, and services for women who are homeless or poor. They treat women with dignity and respect, and foster a community committed to meeting each woman's needs. They are open six days a week, year-round, to offer food, friendship, and a full spectrum of advocacy and support services to each of their guests.
What we do: Food preparation, Serving meals, Cleaning up. The meal at lunch time consists of high-quality, freshly prepared dishes, including meat or fish, fresh vegetables, fruit, and dessert. Menus are planned to emphasize nutritional content and diversity. Food preferences are accommodated, and vegetarian alternatives are available at every meal. Unlike traditional soup kitchen food service, which generally fulfills a woman’s basic nutritional needs, the Women’s Lunch Place, offers a restaurant-style lunch with volunteers serving guests who are seated at tables in the dining room. There are fresh flowers on each table and china plates and flatware. Lunch is more than a meal at the Women’s Lunch Place. It is an important part of renewing a guest’s self esteem and providing her with a sense of dignity and normalcy.
Requirements: A heart-felt desire to be of active service to others in our community.  
Date: Second Tuesday of each month Time: Serve for as long as you can between 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM  
Location: 67 Newbury Street, Boston, MA 02116
