Volunteering at the foodbank
Get Involved

Everyone at the food bank is a volunteer. There are no paid positions and all cash donations, with income tax receipts issued, go directly to maintenance, operation supplies and towards purchasing items that they run out of.

The Markham Food Bank depend heavily on volunteers for much or all of their operational activities. In fact, 100% of food banks are run solely by volunteers. Their important work is made possible through contributions from corporate sponsors, individual donations, community support and parent organizations.
