We are looking for a Volunteer Bookkeeper

 

Our Organization

Food4Kids Guelph is a small, local registered charity. On a weekly basis, we provide weekend food bags for children whose families are struggling to make ends meet. We purchase food that is then packaged and distributed as individual food bags to schools on Fridays, for the children to take home with them. The program is run by a dedicated team of volunteers with one  Program Administrator who is our sole employee. Find out more on our website
