HELP AT COMMUNITY EVENTS
Not only is our organization full of dynamic, hardworking, passionate and fun community members, we also strive to ensure that our volunteers feel valued and that we are giving back to them in a meaningful way. This can be by way of helping to stock your pantry with our delicious local value added products, Kootenay Food swag (like our awesome ‘grow your own food’ t-shirts), or a variety of other ways depending on the initiative your are volunteering for.
We are currently in the process of creating a volunteer gratitude system that will allow volunteers to ‘earn’ Kootenay Bites, which can be used to acquire items from our Kootenay Food pantry. There is also the potential to get some training paid for by the WKPC, such as your B.C. Food Safety Certification.
The WKPC has been able to hire several key staff members for meaningful and dynamic work related to our local food-shed through grants we have acquired. All of the individuals that our organization has hired, started out as volunteers. The opportunities available through our organization are yours for the picking. We want you to feel that there is a place for you with us, no matter how big or how small. The most important component of our volunteerism is that you get to have fun and meet some really great community members. The rest is just the icing on the cake!
We want to match you with a volunteer role that suits you to optimize your volunteer experience with the WKPC. In an effort to do this we have created general categories in order to streamline our communication efforts.
