*Please note: Due to COVID-19 protocols, Daily Bread Food Bank’s March break Youth Take Action Project has been suspended until further notice. 

Volunteer Take Action Project for high school students

Daily Bread’s Take Action Project (TAP) lets you earn a lot of volunteer hours while doing a lot of good for people living in poverty in Toronto.


You will help sort non-perishable food donations, pack produce as it arrives from the farm, and do other necessary jobs on our production floor.

TAP offers two chances to volunteer:

March Break

You can work up to 5 half-day shifts – during the week depending on availability. Each half-day shift is 2.5 hours long, so the maximum number of hours you can earn that week is 12.5.

Two days a week in July and August

You can work up to 8 half-day shifts in that two-month period, so the maximum number of hours you can earn in July and August is 20.

Who can volunteer?

  • TAP is open to students from grades 9 to 12.
  • Students aged 14 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who will volunteer with them during the entire shift.
  • Students younger than 18 must bring a signed copy of the Parent/Guardian Permission and Waiver Form for Minors or they cannot participate.




How to register as a TAP volunteer

Email Tira Rampersad-Campbell, Volunteer Coordinator, at learn@dailybread.ca and ask for a TAP registration package.





Do you want to volunteer with friends?

Perfect! Please note that each person must complete their own registration form AND bring in their own Waiver Form for Minors that has been signed by their own parent or legal guardian, if they are younger than 18.

Please note that volunteer letters are given at the discretion of Daily Bread Food Bank, and are given based on consistent attendance, punctuality, and participation.
