Bringing programs to life, one volunteer hour at a time

Volunteering

We offer volunteer opportunities for Individuals and Groups. We embrace the values and guiding principles set out in the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement.

Anyone under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian or a teacher. Youth who are ages 14 through 18 must have a permission form and photo release form signed by a parent or guardian.

All volunteers are required to read and consent to our Code of Conduct.

FoodShare is a scent free environment. Please refrain from using, wearing and bringing scented products and materials when volunteering with FoodShare.

We’re delighted to offer volunteering experience for your group and as it requires some staff time to organize and facilitate group visits we ask that you consider donating:

Tax 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 one tax receipt for collected group donations. Payment may be made by cash, cheque, VISA or Mastercard
