“It felt great to be doing something tangible to support those in need. And doing it in the company of my colleagues was a bonus! The volunteer orientation we received was excellent, and the staff and other volunteers were very helpful.”
Volunteer shifts are available year-round. Although a shift may appear available today or tomorrow, we require 2-3 business days to confirm a shift and ask that you sign up for a shift that provides that coordination time.
With our current COVID-19 precautions, individuals and groups (maximum 20 people) can join us at the Edmonton Food Bank.
Volunteering takes place at Edmonton’s Food Bank located on 11508 120 St NW.
Free street parking is available.
