Media Policy

We prioritize the privacy of our community at our markets. Please note:

No Personal Photography: Volunteers are not allowed to take photos or videos during market hours. This helps protect the privacy of our community.

Official Photos by Fresh Routes: Only designated staff members may take photos or videos for official use.

Your Image in Our Media: By volunteering, you consent to potentially being included in our official photos or videos. If you prefer not to be photographed or filmed, please let our team know.

Fresh Routes is a non-profit social enterprise on a mission to ensure that everyone has access to fresh, nutritious food in a dignified manner. We believe that healthy food should be accessible to all, regardless of income or location. That’s why we operate Mobile Grocery Stores that bring affordable, high-quality fruits and vegetables directly to communities in need.

As a volunteer with Fresh Routes, you’ll play a crucial role in helping us bridge the gap between underserved communities and fresh produce. Your commitment and dedication will contribute to creating positive change in the lives of individuals and families who struggle with food insecurity.

We are so happy you decided to support our community!

Your Volunteer Adventure

Get ready for a fun-filled volunteering experience at our markets! You’ll be the superhero behind the scenes, setting up market stalls, showcasing your strength by lifting and handling boxes, and restocking an array of colourful fruits and vegetables. Imagine yourself zipping around with produce carts, assembling tents like a pro, and bringing life to our market with your energy.

You’ll also play a support role at the checkout, placing pricing tags with precision and assembling delightful food baskets. But that’s not all – you’ll be the heart and soul of our market, engaging in lively conversations with our wonderful customers and staff.

Plus, there will always be other exciting tasks you will assist with, all to ensure our community enjoys a fantastic shopping experience. So, roll up your sleeves and dive into the joy of making a difference – one smile, one fruit, one fantastic market day at a time!

Important Info: Some of our markets may run outdoors, so we encourage you to check the weather forecast and dress accordingly. For your safety and comfort, please wear closed-toe shoes.
