What do our volunteers do?
Every day, our dedicated volunteers positively impact the lives of those living with hunger in our community. To say that The Mississauga Food Bank could not function without our volunteers is an understatement – their commitment is immeasurable and invaluable. Members of our community invest more than 13,000 hours every year, helping us to fight hunger and feed hope in Mississauga.
Volunteers help us by:
- Doing various tasks in the warehouse: sorting food, picking agency orders, cleaning/organizing – the jobs posted on our white board are different every day!
- Staffing our reception desk
- Assisting with administrative tasks
- Providing support at special events
- Organizing food drives
- Contributing as a member of our Board of Directors and other committees
- Students requiring volunteer hours as part of school curriculum may sign up for volunteer activities that are available on our calendar for those under age 18. A summary of hours served can be printed from the volunteer registration system, or documents can be signed on completion of all shift(s).
- Please note our only shifts available for those under age 18 during the week are our Wednesday nights for families and youth. Youth under age 18 MUST be accompanied by a parent/guardian/adult at a ratio of at least 1 adult for every 5 youth.
Questions about volunteering should be directed to email@example.com or 905.270.5589.
**Please note that we are no longer able to accept court-ordered volunteers and will not be providing letters confirming hours served for mandated/court-ordered volunteer service. NO EXCEPTIONS.
