How to help
Because of your support, we can help adults and families with the groceries they need. Fresh food, seasonal produce and staples to those in need is possible with your financial gift. Your gift is direct support to this mission. Donate now.
Drop off at our location, local stores and firehalls. Find out more about where to donate food.
Our food bank is in need of numerous volunteers with specific skills and time availability.
We need 2 or 3 double-vaccinated BINGO HALL VOLUNTEERS, who can commit to a 2 1/2-hour shift on behalf of our food bank once per month at the local Bingo World on Newkirk Road in Richmond Hill. Time slots are Thursday and Saturday evenings; duties very light and easy; training is provided.
If you are interested, please fill in a volunteer application and bring it to our manager IN PERSON on a weekday morning for an interview.
No additional student volunteers are needed for summer of 2023.
Community and Faith Groups
Clubs and groups are welcome to get involved, but because of workplace safety and liabilities and the small size of our warehouse, we cannot accommodate large groups or young children during regular morning hours of operation. No food sorting help is needed until after our Thanksgiving (fall) food drives; email our manager at firstname.lastname@example.org with your inquiry.
Groups working together form a special bond when they help those in need. No team sorting activities are needed during the summer months. Clubs or corporate organizations can do a food drive for us, or may decide to take a day to 'give back'. After the Thanksgiving food drives, in the fall of 2023, we would like to help make that happen; email email@example.com
