Volunteer

"Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart." - Elizabeth Andrew

The Markham Food Bank is constantly in search of volunteers as we depend solely on volunteers for all aspects of our operations. We pride ourselves as we do not have any paid positions. All cash donations go directly towards maintenance, operating supplies and purchasing low-supply items for clients. 


Student Volunteers 


The Food Bank welcomes student volunteers looking to fulfill secondary school requirements (or to simply make a difference in their community!). Student volunteers must be at least in Grade 9 and must reside in the Markham area
