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
- Serving food
- Assisting with cooking classes
- Serving on a committee
Register for the next volunteer orientation.
