Current Volunteer Needs

School Meals Programs

Our school meals programs are growing and greatly benefit by having volunteer support for our school cooks! No cooking background is required yet enjoying food prep is an asset and knowing you’re providing nourishing meals to students is joyful!

Souper Meals Soup Program

Souper Meals has expanded greatly with the assistance of the Feeding Futures funding. To create (and deliver) nourishing meals for students in a locally-sourced and sustainable way, we do require volunteer support! Volunteers head to Zest to pick up our travel-proof containers of soup, local buns and fruit and deliver to schools in Salmon Arm and our surrounding area. Most are drop off primarily yet others are seeking assistance with helping serve students too. 

These areas below are our highest priority at this time. If providing nourishing meals to students appeals to you, please email Mary Nichol, our School Meals Coordinator and see how you can help!
