The Food Bank of York Region counts on the help of our volunteers to meet the need of our hunger relief efforts. We have the food our communities need, but it takes hands-on help to deliver it to our neighbours experiencing food insecurity. Our volunteers’ involvement is crucial to the success of our food program. A special thank you to all our amazing volunteers!
Our Volunteer Program always has ongoing shifts available in our warehouse for hands-on-help to sort and pack all of our incoming and outgoing donations.
Volunteer shifts available are typically scheduled Monday to Friday at 8:00am-11:00am and 11:30am to 2:30pm. Once you signup to volunteer, you will have access to our online scheduler to select a shift at your convenience.
In-Office and Special Event volunteer opportunities will be emailed out to volunteers and posted in the break-room as they arise.
If you have a specific skill set, you think could benefit the FBYR with your time, please email email@example.com to share your thoughts and ideas.
