Volunteering at The Bread of Life is fun and the work is rewarding!
Just a few of our Volunteer Opportunities...
Kitchen/dining room help – 7 days to choose from!
We really need help right away ! Demand is growing and we need daily help with food and beverage service and clean-up. Dishwashers are super helpful too! Hours range from 8:30-2:30. If you can spare a couple of hours a week - we'd love to welcome you to the team!
Weekday kitchen help /Food Triage Helpers
Be here when food deliveries arrive and help sort, label, organize and take items to various storage and distribution areas within the centre. 2-hour shifts.
(semi) Monthly - Clean inside of large front windows – create seasonal and event related displays. Update our Wish-list board and make sure a gratitude of support is in the window somewhere in some form (use your creativity!) Groups welcome!
The Bread Pantry
Help with our food give away. Volunteers sort food donations, clean shelves, set up and supervise our "store" that is open from 11-12 Monday - Friday.
Volunteer requirement is from 10-12:15 ( clean up and close up)
Help with special events
We have many special events throughout the year that require extra hands. Some are fundraisers and some are just special events for our guests and volunteers. Currently we are looking for volunteers for the September 2018 Port Alberni Toy Run (Prep, Set Up, and Serving) and for our Harvest Dinner Fundraiser in October.
June 2019, special volunteer opportunities include:
June 4: Community Clean up ( Neighborhood Garbage pick up ) 11:30-1p.m. supplies will be made available.
June 14/15 Tag days - sign up for 2 hour slots for donation collection at one of our designated locations.
Cleaning and Maintenance
