BECOME A VOLUNTEER
If volunteering and food drives aren't you're thing, the quickest and easiest way to help is to donate online!
Volunteers Are Always Welcome
If you would like to be involved in direct service to our members, talk to us about giving some time to the organization. You will find it a warm and welcoming place where people know that they are an important part of the process. We are always looking for help whether it be serving food, handling our inventory or outreach programs.
Set Up A Food Drive
Setting up a food drive is a simple and effective way to do something concrete for those in need. It can also be very rewarding for the organizers and participants. We particularly encourage supporters to hold food drives in the Spring and Summer months, as it is during these periods that we face the greatest challenge in filling our shelves. We are always happy to offer advice and assistance for food drives and have the ability to pick up donations anywhere in the Toronto region. For more information, feel free to call us at 416.532.2375
Company Team Volunteer Days
A Charitable Team Building Experience
Company Team Volunteer Days are a wonderful opportunity for employees to work together serving our members and learning first hand about Food Banks and issues of poverty in Canada. It is a way to make a tangible contribution while building team cohesion.
PCFB will work with you to plan a day tailored to the needs of your group, which may include a meal together at a local restaurant or other facility. The day includes an orientation by the Executive Director, where issues of poverty and social justice will be discussed, as well as the opportunity of meeting with our senior volunteers and sharing their experiences. Guest speakers may also be invited to make the day even more informative and rewarding. The Team will also be invited to help out by holding a company food drive and/or fund drive, where they can work as a group to engage their colleagues in our valuable and needful work. It is a very fulfilling experience.
We have found that Company teams leave the experience with a sense that they have made a difference in the lives of our members, while strengthening relations among their team's members.
