Thank you for your interest in the Parkdale Food Centre. The first step to becoming a volunteer at PFC is to attend a Volunteer Orientation (anyone under 18 also needs to have their parent or guardian attend the orientation). At the session you will be given a tour of the Centre, learn about how we operate and be given instruction on policies and procedures; you will also learn about other volunteering opportunities in the neighbourhood from our partners.

As a volunteer you may be involved in helping with any of the following activities:

  • Preparing food orders
  • Unloading deliveries
  • Sorting and packaging food
  • Shopping with our neighbours
  • Lending a listening ear
  • Participating in fundraising and community events
  • Serving on a committee

Register for the next volunteer orientation.
