We are looking for THREE more individuals to join us who are 18 years old or older. When you RSVP, we will email you to confirm your attendance.

On February 10, we will be meeting at the Greater Vancouver Food Bank at 8345 Winston St., Burnaby, BC. Please arrive at 9:15 AM. We event is from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM. Please use the accessibility ramp to enter the warehouse. The volunteer lounge where we will all meet in is through the BLUE barn doors.

We will be helping to provide healthy food to clients. Tasks will include handing out food, restocking, line management, recycling cardboard, assembling program packs, or sorting produce. You will have to welcome clients, talk to them about what is available, and ensure a safe environment, so customer service skills and a friendly disposition are a must! Please wear closed-toe shoes and comfortable clothing, and avoid wearing strong scents. There are a few lockers available in the volunteer lounge, so please do not bring too many things with you. Street parking is available, but options are limited so please plan accordingly.

Note: You must be able to stand for an extended period of time and have the ability to bend, twist, lift a maximum of 30 lbs; accommodations can be discussed, however!

Refreshments will be provided and there is a fridge, microwave, and kettle available.
