Thank you for your interest in the Parkdale Food Centre. As a new volunteer you must attend a Volunteer Orientation before you begin, and anyone under 18 also needs to have their parent come to the orientation as well. 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:

  • Welcoming and interviewing guests
  • Preparing food orders
  • Unloading deliveries
  • Sorting and packaging food
  • Stocking shelves
  • Participating in fundraising events
  • Baking
  • Serving food
  • Assisting with cooking classes
  • Serving on a committee

Register for the next volunteer orientation.
