Royal Agricultural Winter Fair Volunteer

Volunteer with FoodShare’s Field to Table Schools program at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair,November 4 – 13th!
Over 20,000 students will be joining us in the “aMAZEing Food Journey” to bite down into some locally grown apples to be a part of our epic synchronized crunching event, The Great Big Crunch. They’ll also be growing with the coolest accessory around, their very own sprouting necklace and getting their hands dirty by exploring our hardest working team members, red wiggler worms.
If you like working with children and youth and are available for at least 4 shifts, please get in touch with us by emailing with a little bit about yourself and your experience working in this kind of environment.

Please note:
  • All successful applicants will be required to get a Vulnerable Sector Check if they don’t already have one. FoodShare can cover this cost.
  • All volunteers will be responsible for their own transport to and from Exhibition Place.
  • Reference letters will be available upon request.
