Help the Calgary Food Bank feed local Calgarians by volunteering as a Warehouse volunteer. Warehouse roles require the ability to lift up to 40 pounds and stand for 3.5 hours at a time. CPA Alberta has committed to help in the following two roles:
Sorting Line Volunteer: Volunteers sort donations from community events and donation boxes, grouping them into their categories like canned tomatoes, soup, and peanut butter. You will be working with up to 35 other volunteers on an assembly line.
Multi Duty: Your tasks will vary depending on the operations of the warehouse and the food donated. Tasks may include: sorting produce and other bulk food items, cardboard compacting, shelf stocking, and warehouse clean up.

Shifts start promptly. In the first five minutes of your first shift, the group will be presented with a brief safety orientation that will include building details not noted in the online Health and Safety training video. Any group member not present for this orientation will not be permitted to participate in the volunteer activity. We advise all volunteers to arrive 5 to 10 minutes prior to the start of your shift.
Prior to your shift, you will be asked to watch an online Health and Safety training video. The certificate of completion will need to be with you at your shift. Additional information will be sent to you upon registration.
