Volunteer Work (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 16 September 2018
You were always doing something. I went with my friends at school and the people there were very friendly. I didn't do much heavy work, my slim fingers were of good service doing smaller tasks that others couldn't have.

North York Harvest Food Bank is a really nice place to work. Team members look out for each other and there is a lot of positivity. The down sides are that, the pay is not that great and we were always short staffed.

Inventory Assistant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 3 April 2017
working at the food bank is very easy and not complicated. A typical day would be arriving at the location, wait for my supervisor to arrive. then we wait for two trucks that bring food. One is the second harvest and the other the north york harvest. The people i work with are friendly and easy to get along. I carry food from the truck to the building. we have interesting conversations all the time. the hardest part of the job is to carry food in very cold conditions that can numb my hands a little. Other than that there is no hard part about the job. I enjoy taking some food with me every two weeks after my shift is done.
