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.
