Welcome to the first volunteering event of 2019!  CPA Vancouver will be assisting Quest Food Exchange with packaging food items for their non-for-profit grocery markets.  Quest Food Exchange is a not-for-profit organization that provides dignified access to a variety of affordable and healthy foods to individuals facing food security challenges in British Columbia. Their primary objectives are to reduce hunger with dignity, build community and foster sustainability. Not open to the general public, Quest Food Exchange works in collaboration with food suppliers who donate their surplus food and community resource partners who refer their clients.

Below are some requirements in volunteering with Quest Food Exchange:

  • Please tie back long-hair into a ponytail or wear a cap/hairnet.
  • Please avoid heavily scented products.
  • Please wear non-slip footwear.  Open-toe footwear and tank tops are not permitted.

Free parking is available along the side streets.  It is not recommended to park in the parking lots near the facilities as they do not belong to Quest. Click here to learn more about Quest Food Exchange.

 

All CPA members, candidates, and students are encouraged to register and help your local community. Coffee and light refreshments will be provided. 

Registration is at 9:30 AM followed by the event from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Thank you for contributing your time.

 

Space is limited to 20 participants, so register now! Registration closes February 1, 2019.  Thank you!
