- Food intake

- Food packing into individual or family parcels (hampers)
- Class 'AZ' DRIVERS, for program logistics (to/from FOOD BANK)

Because the HEALTH and SAFETY of all involved in our mission is FIRST and FOREMOST, volunteers will be organized and trained in accordance with rigorous 'physical separation' requirements needed to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our procedures follow strict Federal/Provincial/Region of Peel requirements.

In this community EMERGENCY, please COMMIT TO VOLUNTEER WITHOUT DELAY. If you have a volunteer 'profile' with Volunteer MBC, click on the yellow box 'Apply Now!' (above/below) to send you name/contact info to the Food Bank confidentially. We will contact you. Refer to 'How to Contact' (below) for other ways to connect with us. THANK YOU!

Goal
Sai Dham Food Bank's main focus is to improve the health and well-being of elderly seniors and individuals with disabilities, who are at greater risk for food insecurity by providing and delivering healthy, nutritious food to their doorsteps at anytime and at no cost. These ongoing services are possible ONLY BECAUSE OF OUR VOLUNTEERS.

During the COVID-19 community EMERGENCY, those in the local community whom the Food Bank usually assists are especially at risk, due to physical 'social isolation', such that demand for our services has escalated dramatically.

We therefore are reaching out URGENTLY for MORE VOLUNTEERS to help us fulfill our mission, and we invite YOU to take up one of 'roles' listed in the 'Description', above. Thank you so much in this unique time of NEED!
