Volunteer opportunities at Loving Spoonful vary throughout the year and by program need, but here is a general list of the roles that are offered at one time or another over the year.

Fresh Food Delivery Drivers

Deliver fresh, healthy food from grocery stores, restaurants, and our cold storage to local shelters and meal programs by car, and reduce food waste while you're at it! You can sign up for recurring or occasional routes, depending on your schedule.

 

Daytime and weekend volunteer opportunities are available year round.

Market Booth Ambassadors

Enjoy the market during summer while collecting fresh healthy produce at the Downtown Kingston Public Market or at the Memorial Centre Farmers Market for our Grow A Row program.

 

Volunteer opportunities are available while markets are open from May to October.

School Workshop Assistants

Workshop Assistants help our staff facilitators teach kids in Grades 4 to 8 about food security, gardening, healthy eating, community and cooking through hands-on, in-class GROW Project workshops.

 

Volunteer opportunities are available during the school year.
*The GROW Project is not running in 2020-2021 school year.

Kitchen Workshop Assistants

Help out in our Community Kitchens cooking classes where we make healthy, affordable meals, building food literacy and community as we work together in the kitchen and share meals. Some food skills and an outgoing and encouraging attitude are required.

 

Volunteer opportunities vary by program need throughout the year.

Event Support

Primarily during summer months, volunteers help plan, execute and staff our community-building and fundraising events.

Volunteer opportunities vary by event need.

Gleaners

Spend time in the fresh air during the late summer and fall harvest season! Gleaners collect surplus crops from farmers' fields and urban gardens to help reduce food waste and redistribute it to Kingston communities who need it.

Volunteer opportunities are available from August to November.
