Volunteer!

The Alex CFC is looking for volunteers from all backgrounds and experiences to bring their passions, talents, or interests to the table and make the Community Food Centre a vibrant community hub!

We have many exciting opportunities available that are open to everyone, with an array of shifts to fit your schedule.

Possible volunteer opportunities include:

  • Working in the kitchen to prepare and serve food with the guidance of the chef;
  • Assisting in the facilitation of one of our drop-in programs;
  • Getting your hands in the dirt at the garden;
  • Standing up for and learning about causes you believe in, or helping your peers learn how to make themselves be heard through the Community Action Program;
  • Assisting in the creation and development of various programs offered at the Centre; and
  • Helping with cleaning and maintenance of the Centre.

In most circumstances, volunteers must be over the age of 16, unless child-specific volunteer opportunities are posted.

If you are interested in sharing your time with the Alex CFC, please feel free to complete the volunteer application form below!

The Alex CFC’s Commitment to Volunteers

The Alex CFC is committed to upholding the dignity and equality of rights of all persons.

The Alex CFC is committed to diversity in principle and practice.  Our commitment is founded in our communal sense of justice and our belief that the world and our organization are enriched by the diversity of our cultures and experiences.  We strive toward a world of understanding and mutual support.


  • The Alex CFC shall not dismiss, transfer, demote, displace, or suspend any volunteer because of race, sex, religion, colour, national origin, ancestry, physical and mental disability, pregnancy, marital status, age, medical condition, sexual orientation, political belief, gender identity, HIV status, or other non-job related factors, providing the latter, once reasonably accommodated, does not prevent the volunteer from carrying out the essential duties or requirement of the position.



  • The Alex CFC will not deny any duty to any volunteer applicant because of race, sex, religion, colour, national origin, ancestry, physical and mental disability, pregnancy, marital status, age, medical condition, sexual orientation, political belief, gender identity, HIV status, or other non-job related factors, providing the latter, once reasonably accommodated, does not prevent the volunteer from carrying out the essential duties or requirement of the tasks assigned.



  • The Alex CFC will not tolerate the harassment of any volunteer by another volunteer or employee of the organization because of race, sex, religion, colour, national origin, ancestry, physical and mental disability, pregnancy, marital status, age, medical condition, sexual orientation, political belief, gender identity, HIV status, or any other reason. The organization interprets harassment in this case to mean any course of comment or conduct that is known, or thought reasonably to be known, as unwelcome.


This policy is intended as a general guideline for all volunteers as to the conduct and behaviour expected within this organization. When used with sound judgement and common sense, it should properly protect all volunteers of The Alex CFC.
