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.

We are also looking for volunteers for our After School Program in Perth on Tuesday and Thursdays.

With the New Year comes the need for new volunteer staff for the 2016 Programs.  If you would like to help out with the After School Program, the Community Kitchen or Meals, the Good Food Bank, Dad and Kids in the Kitchen, or some of our shorter run workshops please contact Beth at 613-267-6428 x4  or email her at beth@thetablecfc.org.

With the New Year we will be starting up a new round of programs in January and February and looking for a new group of program volunteers.  If you want to join an amazing team of caring folks now is the time to fill out a volunteer application to begin to make that happen.

Volunteers! Come out and get to know other volunteers at The Table! Thursday March 19th from 5-7 The Table's social justice club, the Community Action Network, will be hosting a volunteer social offering tea, coffee, snacks and the space to share stories.
