Get hands-on experience tackling food insecurity in Mississauga and play a key role in providing healthy and appropriate food to neighbours in need.
About the role
Sort food to prepare for its distribution to neighbours in need through Food Banks Mississauga’s network of 60+ agency members across the city. Build valuable experience and skills while making a difference in your community. Leadership opportunities are available!
Sort food donations according to best before dates, package integrity, and food type to prepare them to be distributed to neighbours through our network, and inspect and package food donations to ensure they meet health and safety requirements.
Build, pack, label, scan, and stack food boxes, and recycle packaging materials, bale cardboard, etc.
