Volunteer in Ottawa

Volunteers are the backbone of Zero Food Waste Canada. We can't wait for you to join us!

Applications for volunteer drivers are now open!

Volunteer drivers pick up extra food from our partner food vendors and redirect the food to local humanitarian agencies. Volunteer drivers are assigned to food rescue routes on a schedule that works best for them.

Volunteer Agreement

I agree to participate as a volunteer with Zero Food Waste Canada Ltd. (Ottawa Chapter) and I have familiarized myself with the criteria related to my participation within the program.

I hereby agree to the following expectations in any/all activities associated with my role as a volunteer:


Be punctual to all events that you are registered for, especially pickups/deliveries.

  1. Stay professional by being respectful at all times, keeping positive, and watching your tone.

  2. Wear appropriate attire based on current health regulations (masks, gloves, etc).

  3. For Volunteer Drivers, recognize missing a pickup without prior 48h notice to the food provider will result in a strike. After 3 consecutive strikes, you will no longer be able to volunteer as a driver.

I hereby acknowledge all of the risks involved with my participation in any/all activities associated with my role as a volunteer. I will not hold the national organization, Zero Food Waste Canada Ltd., nor its members liable for any loss or damage of property and/or equipment.
