The Seed Volunteers

Here at the Mustard Seed Street Church, we love volunteers who are kind, eager to serve and have a heart for the community. As a non-profit organization, we heavily rely on our amazing volunteers to be able to run smoothly throughout the year.

We have limited opportunities available for volunteers due to Covid-19, but we would love to work with you to find you a place in our community either at our Food Security Distribution Centre Warehouse (808B Viewfield Rd) or at our downtown location at 625 Queen’s Ave. Times available are from 8am to 4pm (varies in each department), Monday to Friday.

The Mustard Seed Street Church has COVID-19 protocols for each different department to ensure the safety of our volunteers. If you would like to view these protocols and procedures, click here.

Volunteer Opportunities

Take a peek at some of our different volunteer opportunities below! Currently we are operating our Food Security and Hospitality departments. Due to COVID we are limited in accepting new volunteers, but we are still taking applications and slowly bringing people in depending on restrictions as they come.

Our volunteers assist staff every day to collect, receive, inspect, sort and package items into nutritious hampers for people that need assistance. Opportunities are available at our Queens and Viewfield warehouses.

Hospitality House exists to answer these questions:  Needing a haircut? New-to-you clothing or shoes? Facing a personal crisis? Want to learn how to cook? Need prayer? Lonely and want fellowship? These are the types of services we offer in our Hospitality House through the help of our volunteers.

The Mustard Seed Street Church would not function without a dedicated and talented Administration team of staff. From managing our offices to working with donors, hosting our reception window, managing volunteers and keeping our facilities clean, the staff are assisted by diligent volunteers. These roles are an integral part of how the Mustard Seed remains open and available to meet the needs of the community they serve.
