Volunteers, important update

As a volunteer with the Georgian Good Food Box, we would like to thank you for your service and commitment to our organization, particularly throughout the pandemic.  Recently, the provincial government instituted a proof of covid-19 vaccine system in select settings.  Because we do not own our packing locations, we must comply with both the requirements of our pack sites, and the requirements outlined by our insurance provider and provincial government.  Doing so ensures we all can safely pack and distribute the good food bags each month.

Beginning with the October 20th pack, all volunteers will be asked to confirm their vaccination status as fully vaccinated or not.  Fully vaccinated is defined as two doses, with the second dose more than 14 days ago. Please bring proof of vaccination with you to the pack.
We will not be able to welcome volunteers who are not fully vaccinated into our pack locations to assist with indoor packing.
If you are fully vaccinated and able to assist with the pack, please let your pack site coordinator know.  If you are not fully vaccinated but would like to still assist in an outdoor or remote role (such as transporting bags or managing pick up lists), please let your pack site coordinator know.
We will continue to require all volunteers to wear a mask, maintain social distancing wherever possible, sanitize hands and complete screening questions on arrival.
We want to thank you for your patience as we navigate these new requirements.  We hope that we can all safely gather soon and, in the meantime, please take good care.
If you have any questions, please reach out to our board via our email address gfoodbox@gmail.com.
Thank you, Georgian Good Food Box Board of Directors

Volunteers Needed

The Georgian Good Food Box is a non-profit wholesale buying club for all residents of Southern Georgian Bay. Boxes of fresh, healthy produce are packed once per month by dedicated volunteers.
We are currently in need of volunteers to staff our pick up locations on the third Wednesday of each month. Our greatest need is in Wasaga Beach at this time, but we are recruiting for all locations.

Volunteer Positions Available!

Packing Volunteers must be able to lift 15-20 pounds, and to assist customers with pick ups. We also have positions that do not require lifting, all are welcome!

If you are interested in helping out, please send us an email at gfoodbox@gmail.com, or call one of our Board members for more information.  Please let us know where you are most able to assist.
