A recent report in 2018 indicated that approximately 60% of food is wasted in Canada. This is from farmers fields that lay to waste or purchased food that is never consumed. Our pantry processing staff make sure that every bit of fresh food is processed to be consumed during the winter months.

Our kitchen staff welcome volunteers to participate in food processing sessions, preserving the harvest or preparing healthy meals for food outreach.


Food Processor Extraordinaire (Occasional – 3 hours per shift)
Sometimes we find ourselves with more food than we know what to do with and need to transform it into something which will feed our community for a longer time. Food processors will do anything from canning and picking to making freezable meals for our Food Pantry. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills and have a direct impact on your community.
