Delivering tightly-wrapped hot meals and food bank hampers to families throughout Edmonton through our "community food truck" program.

Volunteer drivers are assigned addresses in relative proximity to one another, grouped by area of the city (northeast, south, downtown, etc.) to make the task easier.

Volunteers are reimbursed $10/day for gas expenses (canavua.org/PDFs/volunteer_reimbursement_form.pdf).

We typically meet on Wednesdays at 11:45 A.M. at our community food truck. The food truck will be parked at one of two locations:

1) The intersection of 91 Street and 83 Ave. (one block north of Whyte Ave. and very close to the Campus Saint-Jean). Postal code: T6C 1B6.

2) The Value Village at the intersection of Fort Road and 137 Ave. (where Fort Road becomes Manning Drive, at the southwest corner of the intersection). Exact address: 13530 Fort Road NW, T5A 1C5.

We will be sure to let you know where the food truck will be parked well in advance.

Please sign up by email us at info@canavua.org and by filling out our online volunteer registration form: https://www.canavua.org/inscription

Filling out this form will help us to keep in touch with you more easily and notify you of the food truck schedule.

CBC and CTV recently published great articles about our food truck initiative. We've also uploaded footage of our volunteers in action on our YouTube channel:

CANAVUA's community food truck is an initiative to provide people struggling financially in Edmonton with hot, healthy and FREE meals, either in person (at our food truck) or by home delivery, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We're very grateful to all our volunteer drivers. As our food truck becomes increasingly popular, we need more drivers to keep up with the growing demand. Many thanks in advance!

Dans le cadre de notre programme de la cantine mobile communautaire (camion-restaurant qui circule la ville d'Edmonton pour servir des repas chauds gratuits à des personnes dans le besoin), vous aiderez, en tant que conducteur bénévole, à livrer des repas chauds et des boîtes de notre banque alimentaire hebdomadaire à des familles et des individus de faible revenu à Edmonton chaque semaine. Tous nos conducteurs bénévoles sont remboursés 10$/journée pour leurs frais de carburant (canavua.org/PDFs/formulaire_de_remboursement.pdf). Cette initiative est particulièrement importante pendant la pandémie de COVID-19 et permet la distanciation sociale.

Nous vous donnerons une liste d'adresses à Edmonton où vous livrerez des repas chauds à nos clients. Toutes ses adresses seront classées par région de la ville (le nord-est, le centre-ville, le sud, etc.) pour faciliter la tâche.

Les bénévoles se rencontrent chaque mercredi à l'un des deux emplacements suivants:

1) Le croisement de la 91ème rue et de la 83ème avenue (T6C 1B6), près du Campus Saint-Jean;

2) Value Village - 13530 Fort Road NW

Nous vous communiquerons l'endroit exact par e-mail. Nous avons l'habitude d'alterner entre ces deux lieux chaque mercredi.

Raison pour laquelle, pour vous inscrire comme bénévole, nous vous prions de nous envoyer un e-mail à info@canavua.org et de remplir notre fomulaire d'inscription électronique à https://www.canavua.org/inscription

Ça nous aidera à rester en contact plus facilement avec vous et de vous communiquer l'itinéraire hebdomadaire de notre camion-restaurant.

Radio-Canada a publié cet excellent reportage sur notre cantine mobile: https://ici.radio-canada.ca/nouvelle/1741386/canavua-cantine-mobile-communautaire-restaurant-camion-edmonton

Nous avons également publié des vidéos de nos services sur notre chaîne YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvasrHplFUY

Grâce à des reportages médiatiques récents, de plus en plus de personnes dans le besoin s'inscrivent pour recevoir des repas chauds gratuits chaque semaine. Raison pour laquelle, nous aimerions recruter de nouveaux conducteurs bénévole pour renforcer notre capacité de leur livrer des repas pendant ces temps difficiles.

Nous vous remercions d'avance de votre intérêt à devenir bénévole de CANAVUA. Vos efforts aideront à alimenter bon nombre de personnes vulnérables à Edmonton.
