Youth/Students

Community Service Hours

Are you a student who needs community service hours for high school, for a post-secondary application, or simply because you want to make an important difference in your community? We have opportunities for students to complete their community service hours individually. You can volunteer on one of our regular year-round weekly shifts, volunteer during the summer, or volunteer to help out at special events, which usually occur on weekends. We do have waiting lists for these opportunities, so don’t leave things until the last minute! If you would like to volunteer with us, please contact our volunteer coordinator at janet@edenffc.org for more information. Parents, please note that the contact must be made by the student, not by you. Please note also that due to the number of students who would like to volunteer with us, our student waiting lists are restricted to youth living in western Mississauga. If you reside in a different area and would like to volunteer more locally, please check out other food bank locations for more information.

Student Volunteer Night

Student Volunteer Night is held the 3rd Tuesday of every month(from September – May) at 2-3185 Unity Drive, for 2½ hours, and is an opportunity for high school students to learn about the food bank and partake in special projects.

If you are a high school student and want to make a difference in our community along with dozens of other students join us at Student Volunteer Night. Learn about hunger and poverty in western Mississauga at our monthly meetings and plan activities and events to do something about it!

Get community hours for both the monthly meetings and other activities you’re involved in.

Youth Groups

We can hold a “Tour and Sort” event for your youth group on a Monday or Wednesday evening. Your group is required to bring food to sort on the evening of your event. If you would like to bring your youth group to Eden Food for Change please contact us at Christina@edenffc.org for more information or to book at date.

Another option is our kitchen experience where a group can come in and prepare food to be distributed through our food bank.
