Volunteer Board Members Needed!

We are looking for committed, engaged, local community members to sit on our Board of Directors.  If you are passionate about helping others and addressing food insecurity issues, we would love to hear from you.  We are especially interested in Board members with experience in marketing and advertising and financial record keeping.

Our board meets monthly for 1-2 hours on the Tuesday following pick up date, in Collingwood, Wasaga Beach or Stayner.

Update for volunteers

With the decline in hospitalizations and high vaccination rates, Ontario’s COVID-19 mask mandates have been lifted in almost all settings. This is great news! With that in mind, moving forward each pack site will determine best practices for their setting. Please continue to wear a mask if you feel it is right for you, if you are at a high risk for severe illness, if you’re recovering from COVID-19, have symptoms, or you are a close contact of someone with COVID-19.
We ask all volunteers to maintain a respectful pack site for everyone who enters our doors. People who use respectful behaviour:
  • use a calm voice
  • set realistic expectations
  • work together
  • ask politely for what you need.

We will not tolerate violence or harassment at our pack sites.

We will continue to monitor public health guidance and we will communicate any changes to volunteers directly. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us via email at gfoodbox@gmail.com or phone, 705-445-9660.

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.
