Our work is made possible because of the many, community minded individuals who share their time and talents with us as volunteers.
We have an incredible and diverse team of people who volunteer their time in everything from our programs, to special projects, events and committees.
We celebrate our diverse community, by committing ourselves to fostering a workplace that is inclusive, collaborative and respectful. By becoming a volunteer at The Kitchen, you will be expected to honour and respect all of our members, and value the unique experiences and skills of each individual on our team and in our community.
If this sounds like something you can get behind, let’s talk!
Whether you are looking for a way to make a difference through casual on-call opportunities, weekly core positions or enjoy diving into complex and impactful projects, we would love to hear from you.
Please complete our prospective volunteer intake form, and a staff member will contact you within 2 weeks of your submission to discuss next steps.
July 17 Update: We are taking a brief pause from onboarding new volunteers as we work to develop additional positions. Please check back in August for volunteer opportunities.
