Volunteers & Support

Donate NowDonate A Car

With the thousands of volunteer man-hours given in support of the operations of the Guelph Food Bank, food reaches those who need it.

Some volunteers donate their time on a regular basis, others are on call and ready to appear at food drives or special events, and still others drop in when they have a spare hour or two to help. Volunteers over the age of 10 are welcome, including seniors. We value all of our volunteers for who they are and for their willingness to help tackle any task. We have jobs for all ages and capabilities.

We simply could not operate with our staff of three without the care and dedication of our volunteers.

Volunteers are always needed for the Clothing Exchange and the Warehouse.

If you’re interested in volunteering please download the Volunteer form at the bottom and submit it to the Guelph Food Bank.
