Volunteers pick up food hampers from the Community Market and deliver them to our most vulnerable recipients in Edmonton.
Volunteers go through non-perishable donations to check the packaging and the best before dates, before organizing donations and stocking shelves.
Loader & Unloader
Volunteers accompany staff to the store to load supplies to then unload at the Community Market.
Volunteers help unload and organize food off of trucks.
Volunteers orientate people to the Community Market, monitor and restock supplies, and perform cleaning duties.
Volunteers prepare hampers of primarily fresh foods that are later delivered to our most vulnerable community members.
Volunteering to Facilitate
Do you have a gift you'd love to share or a program you would love to help facilitate? Do you have your own programs that you think would be an asset to the community? In need of a space to be able to run that program, group or club?
We are always looking to partner with groups, services, and individuals to create new programming, expand programming, or give an already established program a place to host. We believe the best way for our initiatives to be successful is for the community to actively get involved. Volunteering is one of the simplest ways to help out our Hub.

Volunteering with the Community Market
Food insecurity in Edmonton has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The C5 agencies have responded by developing a Community Market for those struggling to feed their families, with funding from the Government of Canada, the Government of Alberta and the Edmonton Community Foundation.
The Community Market provides over 700 families with fresh fruit and vegetables, milk, bread and other pantry necessities every other week. Every week we hear form our community members how the Community Market helps relieve some of the stress created by the pandemic and economic slowdown.
Awesome environment, I learned a lot volunteering here from the staff and making new friendships.
The people that work there are just amazing, the families that go just love it.
Great place to come. Home away from Home, great people and great atmosphere.
