Volunteer Opportunity for Daily Bread Food Bank

Each month, Daily Bread provides food for an average of 66,000 client visits through a network of over 170 member agencies. The agencies run neighbourhood food banks where people come to access food hampers, as well as prepared meals.

Next volunteer opportunity will be in October 2019. Check back closer to the date for registration information.  

Highlights from Seneca Serves

Over the past year, our students, staff and faculty volunteered to support a wide range of initiatives. Some of the efforts include sorting food donations, assisting with weeding, harvesting and building homes, creating shoe boxes filled with personal items, painting Bee Hive boxes, and making milk bag mats and pillows out of 4,000 milk bags that will offer people without beds, a safer alternative to sleeping on the ground.
