Sort Food

Our food sorting section of our warehouse is completely volunteer run.

Once food is received from the community and our corporate and food industry partners, it is sorted into roughly 30 different categories. This process ensures that we always know exactly what we have on our shelves and of what we may be in need.

Our food sorting section of our warehouse is completely volunteer run. Our volunteers are trained to look at the condition of the donations as well as the expiry/best before dates to ensure only safe products get into the hands of our neighbours in need.

To volunteer, contact our Volunteer Coordinator today.
