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 are able to 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.
Getting involved with the Central Okanagan Food Bank is an excellent team-building opportunity for companies, groups and individuals looking to give back.
Volunteers are needed at both our Kelowna and West Kelowna locations. To join our team, please print and complete the Volunteer Application Form (pdf), bring it to the next volunteer orientation session at either our Kelowna or West Kelowna branch.
