Corporate Team Building

Bring your team to fight hunger in Mississauga.

Volunteering with your corporate group not only helps your Mississauga neighbours, it enhances your corporate reputation, builds team spirit and increases employee satisfaction. Being active is a welcome change of pace for many corporate volunteers.

As the demand for corporate volunteer positions often exceeds our need for volunteers, we have chosen to recognize those groups who support us in other ways (funds and/or food) by providing them with opportunities to volunteer. We ask that every corporate team provide a minimum gift of $500 to cover the cost of resources needed to distribute the food which the group will sort, or to donate 200 lbs. of food. If you would like to coordinate a food drive as your gift, please visit our food drive page.

Steps to Registering your Corporate Team

Step 1: If you’ve never volunteered with us before, register by selecting NEW VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION on the Volunteer Calendar. If you have volunteered with us before, select ‘Log In’ at the top of the screen.

Step 2: Return to Volunteer Opportunities Calendar to book your shift. Click on ‘I am Scheduling My Group’ near the top of the page to see how many spaces are available for each shift. ‘Sign up’ for the shift of your choice.

Step 3: Fill out the Group Information page and Save. Inserting your volunteers’ email addresses (now or at another time) means they will get email reminders as well as important documents to read and sign. If you prefer not to enter email addresses please be sure to have your group members arrive 10 min. early to read the Health and Safety Outline and sign the waiver.

Step 4: The ‘Please Review Your Selections’ page will confirm the date and time of your shift, and ask you to indicate the number of volunteers in your group. If you are “missing required items” please read and sign the Health and Safety Overview and Waiver.

Step 5: Click to complete SCHEDULE MY GROUP.  You will now see a message confirming your submission. The Volunteer Coordinator will approve the shift or contact you within 2 business days.

Please note:

  • Volunteer opportunities fill up quickly.  Please be prepared to book up to 3 months in advance.
  • All Sorting and Truck volunteers must wear close-toed, sturdy shoes. Slippers and sandals will not be allowed.
  • If you must cancel a shift, please do so well in advance. Simply not showing up means no one else is able to fill that spot.
