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.

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: https://resultscanada.ca/join-us/
