volunteer with us!

The Medicine Hat Food Bank is powered by Volunteers LIKE YOU!

Application Form

We offer volunteer opportunities that make a significant difference to the lives of low-income people in the Medicine Hat and surrounding area. Donations of time or talents is always welcome.

Our volunteer shifts are mainly Monday to Friday with the exception of events.

We prefer if our volunteers not work more than 2 shifts per week to prevent burn out.

Currently you must contact us directly to obtain a shift. You can email us or fill out the form above and we will be glad to set you up here. We can certainly always use the extra help.

You will be required to have a current PIC-VS to start signing up for shifts.


Some of the shifts we have available for you to select are:

  • Delivery Drivers

  • Delivery Prep

  • Repackaging

  • Pick Ups

  • Cleaning

  • Brown Bag Lunch Prep

  • Brown Bag Lunch Delivery Drivers

  • After Hours Events

All of these shifts can be seen once in the portal.​

Besides our basic police information check with vulnerable sector (PIC-VS) we would like our volunteers to know that we have protocols in place for COVID-19.

The food bank has implemented social distancing  as much as possible in our current location but we find that having our volunteers wearing masks and washing their hands is the best solution in our small space. We would ask that if you are sick or not feeling well that you notify us and not come in. You can check with AHS using their online screening tool.

Each volunteer will be able to sign onto our new online portal, coming soon, and select shifts that you would like to work.

You will first create a profile. Once your profile is created and your PIC-VS is verified, you will be able to start signing up for shifts. You will select a shift that you would like to work, then once it is approved by our staff you will be notified. It is that simple!


If you have any further questions about our process or about our volunteering please call 403-528-4313 ext 3 to discuss with our Volunteer Coordinator or email us directly.
