From Monday to Friday, we welcome corporate and volunteer groups for various activities. Your team enjoys a fun, meaningful experience while we get core programs running.
We’re delighted to receive your help and love sharing our facility through as you volunteer. This often takes staff time to organize and facilitate so we ask that you consider donating when you visit FoodShare. Suggested donation per person:
- $0-5 for nonprofits/community groups
- $5-10 for institutions
- $10-20 for corporate groups
Volunteer PossibilitiesTax receipts can be issued upon request for donations of $20 and over to individuals and to organizations who donate by cheque or credit card. We cannot issue tax receipts for collected group donations.
