World Food Day is Everyday

By: Heather @ 2:30 pm

According to the Canadian Health Calendar, World Food Day is on October 16th. While this day has passed, that doesn’t mean that we should be any less aware of how many people need food, water and basic everyday supplies that we often take for granted. At Westmount Moving and Warehousing we understand this need and try to be as involved in our community as possible, whether it is donating money or lending a helping hand. As a proud part of the Kitchener-Waterloo community, we wanted to bring attention to the Food Bank of the Waterloo region. On October 17th (and on other dates as well) they will be donating food and supplies to families in need.

They are currently searching for volunteers to assist in the following tasks:

  • Drivers and assistants to help with scheduled pick-ups (the drivers must have G license and a clean driving record).
  • Volunteers are needed in the warehouse as food support assisting the food team with moving product.
  • Also needed is general warehouse work with forklift experience being an asset.
  • Lastly, food quality control including corporate and perishable food sorting.
