Donate Time

The Heron Emergency Food Centre (HEFC) could never meet the needs of the hungry in our community without the help of those who so generously donate their time every week. Volunteer contributions are wide ranging.

How to Volunteer 

To volunteer, drop by our distribution location at 1480 Heron Road during our hours of operation and speak to our Executive  Coordinator. 

Don't have time to volunteer? How about organizing a fundraiser or food drive at your school or place of work? It doesn't take much to make a difference. Like to garden? How about sharing the fruits (or should we say vegetables?) of your labour by growing an extra row and bringing it in sometime?

Become a Board member - The HEFC is managed by a board of directors that meets monthly (10 times per year). We are always looking for enthusiastic people to serve on the board.​
