There are two types of volunteers associated with The Food Sharing Project. Volunteers who want to help at schools with food programs need to contact the school at which they want to volunteer, and go through that school board’s volunteer process.
Volunteer opportunities at The Food Sharing Project:
Becoming a member on our Board of Directors is a great way to use your leadership skills and passion to support our work. Contact the office to find out more.
From time to time, we are looking for volunteers to help with short-term projects as a committee member. Send us a note if you are looking for a way to help out and have specific skills to offer.
Once a week, on Monday mornings, our team of volunteers packs over 400 boxes of food to be delivered. If you would like to join our roster of volunteers, and can commit to a regular schedule (like every other Monday), let us know.
All on-site volunteers are required to meet our COVID vaccination policy by providing proof of full vaccination, and must complete a short online training module required by the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, and pass a Criminal Police Check.

How You Can Help
Thank you, from the bottoms of our bellies.
Wow, look at this food. They really care about us.
Honestly, having the grab and go station in the school just helps me make it to class.
I don’t know why, but math is easier after I have something to eat.
I saw the student putting a few extra cartons of milk in his backpack, so I gently asked why, and he said he was taking it for his siblings because, "school is the only place we can get fresh milk."
“Just a note to say thank you and your helpers for all you have done for myself and my family. You don’t have to do anymore I think we will be okay for now.”
