Volunteer with Us

Volunteers are the heart of the Dartmouth Family Centre/Dartmouth North Community Food Centre. We currently have approximately 95 active volunteers including community members, students, professionals, and retirees. Volunteers help us with program facilitation, food preparation, serving meals, clean-up, helping out on the farm, supporting parenting programs, childcare and more. We ask for a commitment of 1 shift/week (approx. 2 hours) for 4 months.

See our current list of volunteer opportunities here to see what fits with your schedule and interests.
