Our mission at House of Charity is to feed those in need, house those experiencing homelessness, and empower individuals to achieve independence.
Want to move your feet, use your hands and make friends while saving meals from a landfill AND serving those in need? Volunteer as an individual or with your family, corporate group, significant other, civic group, faith community or sports team in our Food Centre.
Volunteers help us serve meals, prepare food (chop potatoes, crack eggs), sort donations and keep our spaces clean!
