Volunteer

We would like to extend our personal thanks to all of the wonderful volunteers who make the Good Food Box possible every month.

Would you like to become part of our Good Food Box team? The Good Food Box of the North Okanagan could use your help. You can make a difference for as little as 1/2 day per month.

Volunteers in the Vernon area with a pick up truck are urgently needed for 2-3 hours one morning per month for produce pick up.
On the 3rd Wednesday of the month from 8am to 10:30am (give or take an hour) we need you to meet us at our supplier’s location to pick up produce and drive it to our distribution location in Vernon. We pay mileage between locations to cover your gas cost. If you can lift up to 50lbs that would be wonderful but just driving the truck would be a huge help. We need a couple of people with trucks for these positions.

Delivery Driver (back up):
On the 3rd Thursday of each month from 8am till approximately 2pm we need a backup person with a pick up in the event our regular delivery driver is unavailable. We pay an honorarium per box delivered. Note: delivery service is offered in the Vernon area only to pre-approved applicants who for health or mobility reasons are unable to pick up their box. There is a small fee for this service.

General Assistants:
On 3rd Thursday of the month from approx 3pm-6pm we need one or two volunteers to help wash and stack the Good Food Box bins and help with general clean up.

In addition we always need volunteers at the Anglican Church in Vernon on Wednesday morning before Box Pick up Thursday to help weigh produce and pack boxes. On the 3rd Thursday afternoons from 2-6pm we need volunteers at the same location to help with order pick up.

If you can spare half a day per month and can lift up to 10lbs please contact: Program Coordinator Diane Fleming @ 250-306-7800 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
