Volunteer Application

Volunteer Application 

Thank you for your expressed interest in volunteering your time with the Manna Food Bank.  What follows is a general outline as to how the Food Bank operates. 

 Client orders are submitted either online or via telephone and printed at the Manna office. 

We have a remote team with 4 members who are responsible for taking orders from our clients online and by telephone.
There are Stocking Teams who volunteer on Mondays and Thursdays to ensure the shelves at Manna are replenished.
The Food Bank is open for order pick up on Tuesdays from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm and Fridays from 11:00 am to 4:00pm.
We have 8 teams for the afternoon shifts, composed of packers an interviewer and a team lead.
Each team works a three - four hour shift every 4 weeks.  The Tuesday 4pm to 6pm shift is manned by a separate team of 2 people.  We also have a substitute volunteer list as not everyone can commit to a set schedule due to other obligations.

Should you decide to join our Team, you will be required to complete a Volunteer Application, Oath of Confidentiality, and a Police Check (completed online).  As the health of our volunteers is paramount to Manna, we would also require you to be fully vaccinated with proof provided.  

Do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions on the above. Once I hear back from you that you would like to proceed, I will forward the paperwork to you via email.

Thank you again for your interest in Manna.  I hope to hear from you soon.
