DESCRIPTION

*MINIMUM AGE TO PARTICIPATE: 18*

As an essential service, Daily Bread continues to operate and needs the support of volunteers to help maintain our food distribution operation.  Each month, we are seeing the number of people accessing food banks increase and we need to make sure we continue to supply food to those experience poverty and hunger.

You should be comfortable standing for extended periods of time as well as lifting 20-30 lbs repetitively.

You will be trained on the following tasks:

  1. Packaging pre-packaged hampers
  2. Sorting/processing of donated food
  3. Removal of waste and general cleaning
  4. Other tasks as needed by the production staff

We've taken the following steps to ensure a safe environment:

  1. Screening all volunteers upon entry
  2. Limiting the number of volunteers on-site at any given time to ensure proper social distancing
  3. Requiring that masks are worn at all times unless taking a break in a designated area
  4. Increasing cleaning of all common areas
  5. Providing gloves and masks as needed

Location: 191 New Toronto Street, Toronto ON, M8V 2E7

Minimum Commitment: 1 shift per week
