Register as a Volunteer

Help to fight hunger in Mississauga!

Volunteering at The Mississauga Food Bank is a great way to give back to the community and to meet new people.

Corporate Teams are not to use this process for requesting volunteer shifts, please see the Volunteer as a Corporate Team page for information.

Steps to Volunteering as an Individual

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

Step 2: Once you have registered and are logged in, click Return to Volunteer Opportunities Calendar and SIGN UP for the shifts that suit you best.

Step 3: The ‘Review Your Selections’ page will ask you to read and initial the Volunteer Waiver and the Health and Safety Outline.

Please note:

  • Volunteer opportunities fill up quickly so be prepared to sign up well in advance. If there are no available shifts on the calendar, that means there are no opportunities to volunteer. ALL opportunities for individuals are posted on the calendar – you do not need to email asking for other volunteer opportunities.
  • Far more volunteers are needed in the fall and winter than in spring and summer months as food donations tend to be much higher during the giving seasons.
  • If you do not receive an email confirming your volunteer shift please check your SPAM folder.
  • If you must cancel a shift, please do so well in advance in order to allow someone else to fill that spot.
