Volunteers are the backbone of The Sharing Place Food Centre.

Without their dedication and commitment, we would not be able to support our members or run our programs.

We are looking for volunteers who can commit to a regular schedule, on the same day each week. Keeping a regular schedule helps us to provide members with high-quality service. It also allows our volunteers to become comfortable in their roles and build a rapport with the same team each week.
