COVID-19: Meal Delivery/Kitchen Help

    Toronto, ON

COVID-19 notes:

  • We have relaxed criteria for posting volunteer opportunities due to the urgent need for COVID-19 Response. Volunteers are responsible for confirming the legitimacy of the group or organization(s) they are working with. Never hand over money or confidential information to groups looking for volunteers.
  • Please confirm that the organization you want to volunteer with can ensure your safety.


Meal Delivery: No Car Required!

We are looking for people to help us deliver hot meals to an established group of seniors and disabled in the St.Jamestown community of downtown Toronto.  All of our seniors & disabled live within a 1/2 block block radius and we deliver anywhere from 50-75 hot meals twice-monthly.  Meals are prepared hot in an equipped basement of 200 Wellesley St. East and will be placed in foam containers to keep them hot for the trip to the seniors home. There will be one bag for the hot part and another bag for the cold part of the meal (salad, dessert, juice, etc). There is no special training required - it is simply walking in pairs with a shopping cart within a quarter-block radius and delivering the meals to the apartment #'s provided. Mask wearing is mandatory.

Kitchen Help:

We may also need one or two people in the kitchen to help us prepare salads, package up the desserts and juice and sort a variety of vegetables/fruit for a produce bag which will be delivered with the meal. Mask wearing is mandatory.

Dates Needed:

Wednesday September 23rd and Thursday September 24th

Tuesday October 13th

Wednesday October 28th and Thursday October 29th

A Note From Volunteer Toronto:

The safety of volunteers is our first priority. All opportunities shared through Volunteer Toronto will not put you or others at-risk of further contamination. Please review Volunteer Toronto?s COVID-19 Volunteer Update, for a full overview of our safety recommendations.  As an additional precaution, we encourage you to ask the following questions before getting involved in the community:  

  • What safety measures are in place to protect volunteers? 
  • How will I receive training for this volunteer role? 
  • If I have any questions or concerns, who will be my direct supervisor? 
  • Who do I contact, and how, if a supervisor is not available?  


 Thank you for your support during this challenging time.
