Glean Team Pick Up from Roche Bros. August 1 thru' October 31, 2021

The Glean Team

if you are new to the The Glean Team or considering joining the information below is an excellent introduction to what is involved. From when you arrive Roche Bros. to unloading at the pantry it usually takes anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes.

Contact either Bob Benson or Courtney Snyder (info at bottom) if you are interested in joining a volunteer for a pantry run before signing up. Thanks!

Please note, begining in July, on Mondays, volunteers will be picking up frozen meat at Shaws in Stow Center to be delivered to WHEAT and/or Loaves & Fishes (call each first). 

The store is at  155 Great Rd, Stow, MA (Route 117) on the north side of 117.  Drive around the left side of the store to the back.  You enter the back of the store at a single unmarked gray door with a small ramp (about 1 foot high).  Walk straight in and the cool room with the meat (in banana boxes  on a cart) is in about  50 feet and to the right.   The cart can be moved to the door and the boxes then loaded onto your vehicle.  The heaviest boxes are about as heavy as the heaviest produce boxes from Roche.  The process is easier than at Roche.

First make contact with Tessa, the meat manager (and Bromfield grad) around 8:30 on Mondays and tell her you are planning to pick up meat.  Her number is 978-897-5140 X4, X4.  9AM is a good time to pick it up and to deliver it to either Wheat or Loaves.  

In addition, begining with Saturday, July 10th and continuing on alternate Saturdays , the Roche Bros. pick up will be delivered to Freebee (823 Mass. Ave., Boxboro). As you may know this location popped up in February 2021 to assist those families who lost their homes (condos) to the devastating fire that swept through the complex on Swanson Road.  On the alternate Saturdays the delivery will go to Transitions in Devens as before. The sign up sheet indicates which location gets the delivery that particular Saturday.

 

Instructions for Roche Bros. Pick Up:

Drive around the back to the 2nd loading dock (there are stairs leading up to it and a rolling ramp for boxes). If the loading dock door is closed first try knocking/banging on the door and it will be opened. If not, call the store (978-263-0404) and tell them you need the back loading door opened. Go in and ask for either Henry, Edgar or Joe and tell them that you are picking up for the food pantry.  They will show you where the cart is with the donated produce (if ready) and the walk in where prepared foods and dairy are stored.  Prepared foods have to be boxed (we will show you where to find boxes). If you have any concern about which are the prepared foods for the pantry ask before boxing. Before taking dairy make sure the Expiration Date is at least that day or later.

Take EVERYTHING offered EXCEPT breads and other baked items (these go to other pantries each day). Breads & Baked goods can be taken on the 3rd Wednesday of every month (the other pantry is closed on that day).

Find your day below and follow the directions to the appropriate pantry.  All pickups should be made between 10:00-10:30 AM and then delivered directly to the pantry listed for that day.  


Tuesdays and Thursdays: WHEAT (272 High Street Extension, Clinton, MA 978-365-6349);  The pantry is in a small strip mall perpendicular to High Street. Heading south on 110 from Harvard, go through the underpass and straight through the traffic light where 110 turns right. The entrance is the second driveway on your right. Look for a blue sign for Sims Cleaners. The pantry is at the far end of the strip, next to the Brazilian butcher.  

Wednesdays and Fridays:  Loaves & Fishes, 234 Barnum Road, Devens, MA Go down the driveway and back in to the loading dock. Peter is usually there along with 2-3 other volunteers to help you. They will ask you to sign a form indicating how long it took you to do the pick up and deliver.

We love new volunteers! Please spread the word amongst your friends. No better recruiters than those that are already volunteers.

And we love showing new volunteers the ropes.  If this is your first time please contact one of the Glean Team chairs to arrange to shadow one of us before gleaning on your own.
