Offer your time and energy to help others in our community. There are many opportunities for people willing to commit to a length of time (though our Harvest Rescue volunteers can be short-term). Call us at (250) 354-1633, ext. 1 and speak with Sherri, or drop by during our open hours to learn more and sign up.
As a first step, please click here and fill out this simple form so we can get an idea of your interests and skills. Next, we ask potential volunteers to attend an orientation session. These happen four times a year. Please check our calendar to learn when the next one is taking place.
Examples of ways you can become involved:
Volunteering when our Good Food Bank is open, Monday 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. and Wednesday 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Greet people at the front door, help them choose their groceries or re-package bulk food items.
Pick-up food donations from local businesses or pick-up our recycling on a weekly basis.
Organize a food drive at your work place, school or neighbourhood event.
