The North Bay Food Bank depends on volunteers like you
to help serve our clients.


Volunteer Opportunities

How satisfying would it be to be able to take a few hours of time and know that you single handedly prepared and distributed hundreds of pounds of food to those who needed it most? How fun would it be to work alongside a team of people who are akin to kindness and have the courage to move beyond good intentions and into real action?

The North Bay Food Bank depends greatly on the support of volunteers to compile and distribute the food donations we have and join our team who are dedicated to creating more smiles and having fun doing it!
