Food Packing Volunteers   Burlington  Hamilton (City of)  Oakville 
Community Development Halton, Volunteer Halton
1494 Wallace Rd, Oakville, ON L6L 2Y2

Recently, GlobalMedic has opened a new food packing location in Oakville to package and distribute staple foods from our domestic food program, McAntony's Menu. Since the launch of McAntony's Menu in February 2020, GlobalMedic has delivered nearly 1.9 million pounds of food to food banks and other organizations throughout Canada.  Through this program, our volunteers repackage large 50 lb bags of nutritious staple foods into 500g bags ready for use, then delivered to local agencies serving vulnerable clients.  

We are  searching for volunteers to help us package these items at the Oakville location from Monday through Friday. Volunteers will help to package these 500gram food bags of pantry staples, and take large 50 to 100lb bags of pantry staples like rice, green peas, chickpeas, barley, lentils and kidney beans and divvy them into smaller family-sized 500g bags. They are then boxed up and delivered to food banks to be distributed to families in need.

You could work alone if you have a successful history in fundraising. Otherwise, you would be working with 2 or 3 other volunteers to collaborate in development of a fundraising campaign - using our newsletter, website (under construction) and Facebook. 
We are hoping for volunteers who are enthusiastic, creative, optimistic and somewhat experienced in environmental matters, and comfortable in collaborative action. Interest in tree-planting is desirable but not necessary.

Virtual opportunity

Results is an advocacy nonprofit that believes in mobilizing everyday people (our volunteers) to generate the political will to end extreme poverty in low-and middle-income countries. We focus our work on global health, access to quality education and economic opportunities.  
We direct our energy and efforts at government decision makers like party leaders, Members of Parliament and senators because they have the power to improve policies and make the monetary investments needed to end extreme poverty. We also raise awareness by writing letters to the editor (LTEs) and op-eds, using social media, fundraising and more.  
Oftentimes the first step is putting these issues on the radar — and keeping the pressure on. It might seem like a small step, but it all adds up into impact.  
commitment: 1 year minimum, 1-2 hours per week on average  
support structure: Volunteers (virtually) meet in local groups on a monthly basis and rely on their group leader(s) for guidance. Attending other virtual calls and webinars led by Results staff is recommended.  
If you’re ready to learn about advocacy, causes and solutions to extreme poverty and committed to taking action every month, join us! *** To volunteer: sign up here:

We are entering a phase of detailed preparation for our tree planting plan - to gradually build up opportunities for small groups or families in the general public to join a "Tree Planting Club" and engage in small plantings in one zone of Burlington. We will be engaging with the City of Burlington, specifically with the Park and Forestry Department. We are forming a planning committee for this new approach, and you would be welcome as a member of that group which will meet once a week at first, then meet less frequently as the public becomes more informed about how to sign on for the small plantings.

Virtual Zoom meetings
The Development Committee interacts with the Board: brainstorming, making creative suggestions, and collaborating with several Action Groups that are the "front line" of the organization. In general, we need people with a commitment to the natural world and willingness to collaborate with a group to apply that commitment in action. 
1. Attending and participating in a biweekly Zoom meeting of the Development Committee, usually on a Tuesday evening, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. 
2. Brainstorming and engaging in creative, imaginative thinking with a diverse group.  
3. As much as possible, following up between meetings to report relevant information or ideas for the following meeting.  
We welcome and value a few high school students, but we need a majority of adults. We respect that the students must put their academics first, which usually results in losing students at some time in the year.
