Volunteers are the heart of our organization. We absolutely cannot do it without their help. Their gift of time helps us in furthering our mission and to bring hope to our neighbours in need. Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills, make new friends, gain academic credit, give back to the community and feel good about it at the same time.
We serve more than 1500 people weekly thanks to our 180 dedicated volunteers.
Richmond Food Bank volunteers:
- collect, sort, pack, and distribute donated food;
- drive our forklift and organize our warehouse;
- represent us at community events;
- provide outreach and information to our clients; serve as directors;
- much, much more
Last year alone, volunteers gave over 30 000 hours of their time to the Richmond Food Bank.
