Fresh Food Recovery

Join a team of people who love to ensure healthy food options are available to everyone. The new Fresh Food Recovery program is our newest initiative to provide fresh food to those in need by recovering food from local grocery stores.

We need small teams of volunteers to sort and process perishable food that is being received each morning at the Food Bank. Daily shifts will be 2-3 hrs long and potential candidates will need to lift and move 35-50lb containers.

Sign yourself up and we’ll add you to a team or grab 3 or 4 friends and sign up for a team!

Employment Mentoring

Employment Mentoring

The Employment Mentors Program focuses on “Building Connections for Employment””. Through one-on-one matching relationships, we connect newcomers with professionals of similar vocational or skilled backgrounds for coaching and advice in accessing the Canadian Labour Market. From providing informational interviews to attending networking events, our mentors assist our newcomers in gaining valuable knowledge and an understanding of Canadian workplace culture and employment pathways in Canada. Our mission is to work towards a full experience mentorship match that will improve the chances of employment for Canadian newcomers in their chosen professional field. 

Volunteer Mentors are...

  • Leaders willing to invest their time, employment expertise and professional knowledge with a newcomer
  • Community members willing to coach a newcomer seeking knowledge of the Canadian labour market
  • Professionals committed to attending networking events and opportunities with their mentee
  • Goal-focused and motivated leaders willing the share their ‘a-ha’ moments and employment advice with a newcomer
