About the Event

Volunteer Information

We are a registered charity with a mission to end hunger and poverty in Scarborough through provision (food drives), education (public/school presentations) and action (fundraising).

Current Volunteer Opportunities are available during the Spring Food Drive. Reserve any spot that fits your schedule.  

1. Wednesdays and Thursdays: 5:00 pm to 7:00 p.m., volunteers deliver information flyers to residents’ homes informing residents of the food drive and reminding them that RSFD volunteers will come to their homes the following Saturday and Sunday to pick up their food donations.

2. Saturdays and Sundays: 3 pm to 7 pm, volunteers canvass residents’ homes for food donations and process donations in preparation for delivery to food banks and community organizations.

3. Volunteers work with adult supervisors and always travel in groups. We always meet in a school close to the target area we're canvassing to begin each shift, and we return to that meeting spot for dismissal at the end of the shift.

4. Training and safety orientation will be provided at the beginning of each shift.

5. This is an entry-level volunteer position with the potential for leadership opportunities with RSFD. Volunteers are encouraged to enhance their personal, leadership and professional goals by participating in the RSFD Volunteer Certificate Program. Additional information on the program will be provided upon request, and when the food drive begins.

6. We welcome adults and community groups to join us.

In response to Covid-19, RSFD has implemented strategies and safety measures in adherence to the recommendations from Toronto Public Health. If you have any questions or concerns, please forward them to me at rsfd.secretary@gmail.com
