Volunteers make the Table work

Volunteers are vital to our success at the Table Community Food Centre. Our dedicated team of volunteers includes people from all over Lanark County, and people from all backgrounds and experience levels are welcome and encouraged to participate.

We have exciting volunteer opportunities available that are open to everyone. There are an array of shifts to fit your schedule. Some of the possibilities include:

  • Work in the kitchen preparing and serving food under the guidance of our chef;
  • The Good Food Bank can always use help with the work of distributing food to people who need it;
  • Help facilitate one of our ongoing programs like Shovel and Spoon, Dads and Kids in the Kitchen, our Community Kitchen or The After School program;
  • Get your hands dirty helping out in the garden; 
  • Stand up for a cause you believe in, or help your peers learn how to make themselves heard with our Advocacy Office and Social Justice Club; 
  • We have regular fundraising events and community activities that would not be possible without the help of people like you; and 
  • There's always a need for help with driving, deliveries, cleaning and routine maintenance.

Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older to volunteer at the Table. In some circumstances we allow younger volunteers, for example if a parent is available to accompany the volunteer or the position is specifically designed for students.

If you are interested in sharing your time, please contact Beth at beth@thetablecfc.org, phone 613-267-6428 ext. 4, drop by the Centre at 190 Gore St. E, Perth ON.

Volunteer Initiatives

The Table is excited to be partnering with the Rotary Club on the 2017 Perth Ribfest, slated for July 28th to 30th.

In the past two years the Rotary Club has made Ribfest a very successful fundraising initiative that has provided tens of thousands of dollars to local community projects. Events are a lot of work though, and the demand on the Rotary's volunteer pool was not sustainable. This is where The Table comes in. We are very pleased to be partnering with Rotary on this year's festival and one of our key roles is to solicit volunteers from our network of engaged community members. We'll also be taking the opportunity to diversify the food available at the festival and provide some delicious and healthy options for people to enjoy along with, or instead of, the ribs the festival is famous for.

If you are looking for an opportunity to contribute to the community, are enthusiastic, energetic, enjoy working with the public, and want to make this year’s Ribfest a great success, please consider volunteering with the festival this summer. Volunteer positions include: 

  • Main Gate Greeter
  • Service Gate Greeter
  • Cleaning and Maintenance Assistant
  • Car Show Monitor

Volunteer shifts are a minimum of 2 hours and a maximum of 4 concurrent hours in duration. You may work more than one shift per day if you wish and a short training session is held prior to each volunteer shift. Ribfest volunteers must be 18 years of age or older.

It's easy to sign up for a shift or two online. Why not get some family members, friends or colleagues together to support this great community project.
