Good Food Box volunteers are essential to the success of our program. We have 130 dedicated volunteers who make the Good Food Box happen each month. Why not be one of them?
By volunteering with the GFB you enjoy knowing that in a practical way, you are supporting the belief that everyone should have equal access to nutritious food.
We have volunteer opportunities for groups and individuals.
Join a friendly, great group of folks at our Rideau High School location to pack vegetables and fruit into our Good Food Boxes. Packing day is generally the third Tuesday of the month from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. We pack our boxes once a month. Packing day volunteers get to take some of the remaining produce home, and enjoy free coffee, tea, snacks and a lunch. This activity is suitable for corporate or school groups, as well as individuals. The role requires you to be able to stand for long periods, walk for short distances, bend, lift and carry boxes or bags up to 10 pounds each.
