Ways To Give

Volunteer

The Central Okanagan Community Food Bank is a volunteer driven organization. Simply put, we would not exist without the hard work, commitment, and dedication of our volunteers! We wish to thank those who contribute their time through volunteering, fundraising, and food collection throughout the year. It’s through such contributions from the public that we can ensure food reaches those who need it.

Every year, the Central Okanagan Community Food Bank relies on approximately 150 volunteers, contributing more than 25,000 hours.
