Volunteer at Local

 

Volunteers play a vital role in our store.

How will I benefit?

  • All committed volunteers will gain free access to the Fresh Picks Club. This gives you 1st notification and opportunity to order when new local products hit the shelf. 
  • You’ll help play a key role in improving food security within the Elk Valley
  • Be a part of your community

 

Is volunteering a COVID safe activity?
 
Local has a COVID Worksafe BC Plan in place that meets and exceeds the Provincial Health Officer’s recommendations. The plan will continue to be updated as recommendations change. Currently, all people in Local (customers & volunteers) will be required to wear masks. All volunteer roles are designed to ensure you have 6 feet of space to complete your tasks.
