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 or drop by during our open hours to learn more and sign up.

Ways you can become involved:

  • Volunteering at the Nelson Food Cupboard when it is open to the public 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. Visit the Organize a Food/Fund Raiser page to learn more.
