Here’s Something to Chew On

Life can bite any one of us in the rear end. But that vulnerability doesn’t make us any less of a person…it makes us more human — and more deserving of a little humanity from caring people like you. As an organization that relies on volunteers, the Food Bank is in need of a youthful and energetic team of compassionate volunteers ready to dig in and take a stand to promote dignity and equality in times of need.

Come together to build meaningful relationships with clients and donors in person and over the phone, pack hampers, stock shelves, or pick up supplies, and help serve a lasting helping of happiness to the people of Fort Saskatchewan.
