Volunteer for the Food Bank

Come and volunteer in a fun and busy atmosphere where you can make a difference – join the Food Bank team!

The Food Bank is looking for new volunteers to add to our great group of people. We are a dedicated group of volunteers who help the community by providing pre-packaged food items to the public every Tuesday.

Here are just a few of the duties: bagging vegetables and fruit, stocking shelves, portioning dry goods. There are no special skills or experience required. Just have an open mind, a non-judgemental attitude and bring a smile. You have to be able to do some lifting and be mostly on your feet for 6-8 hours.

The Food Bank is open to the public every Tuesday from 10:30 am until 3:45 pm. Volunteers come in at 8am or 9am to get ready for the day. Training and orientation is provided by Senior Volunteers. There are some Food Bank volunteer opportunities on other days of the week as well. Some seasonal fundraising may also be done throughout the year by volunteers who would like to organize. The position is on-going and you can start any time.

We are located at 268 Fulford Ganges Rd. Candidates must be willing to have a police back ground check done. Email the Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@ssics.ca for more information or to show your interest.
