Volunteer - Make a Difference

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! 

Current Opportunities

Warehouse Volunteers

Our Volunteer Program always has ongoing shifts available in our warehouse for hands-on-help to sort and pack 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.

If you have a specific skill set, you think could be beneficial, please email volunteer@fbyr.ca to share your thoughts and ideas.

Please download our Volunteer Handbook for more information.
