RFB Volunteer Application Form - Richmond BC, Canada
Thank you for your interest!
IMPORTANT note about the COVID-19 pandemic: If you have traveled outside BC in the past 14 days, please self-isolate. If you are sick (even if you are confident it is not COVID-19), please stay home for at least 10 days. If you have members of your household who are sick, have compromised health, or are more vulnerable, please do not volunteer, and instead practice social distancing or self-isolate, depending on advice from government and health authorities. For more information, please visit:
We are immensely grateful for all offers to volunteer. However, at this time our priority must be safety and health. Therefore we are limiting the number of people (staff, volunteers, community members) at the Richmond Food Bank at any given time, to reduce risk and allow for proper physical distancing. Please keep this in mind, and thank you for your understanding. You can also support us by donating online through our website
. With donations of funds, we can purchase most-needed foods and resources as needs arise.
After you complete and submit this form, we will review your application and contact you for an interview if your skills and availability are a good match for one of our current volunteer opportunities. Please note that prospective volunteers will also complete a trial shift before they will be added to the roster of volunteers.
Volunteers must be 15 years of age or older.
