Meal Service - Individuals & Groups

Bridge Over Troubled Waters builds confidence and self-sufficiency for homeless youth by providing a continuum of care that includes outreach, basic services, emergency shelter, housing, counseling, education, and employment training. 

In Greater Boston, hundreds of youth are homeless. Often, that means going for a long time without food - something that a developing young person who is trying to stay in school or working to get a job, cannot function without. Be a part of providing warm nutritious meals at Bridge, so youth can have the energy and health to get off the streets to prepare for life.

Please review the information on our opportunities page and complete the group meal application to get involved.
