Bernie Parent, Operations Manager
Originally from Toronto, Bernie relocated to Burlington about 10 years ago. He began volunteering at the food bank in an effort to get involved in his new community. He was hired part time in 2016 and became full time in 2017.
Bernie’s work experience includes customer service, sales, and transportation. He feels very fortunate to be able to help our generous donors with their efforts to support the needy in Burlington, and to work with all the wonderful volunteers who do so much for the food bank every day.
Bernie previously volunteered with Endangered Animal Rescue and Out of the Cold, both in Toronto, and street outreach with Compassion Ministries of Hamilton.
His interests include fitness, travelling, books and animals.
His continued tireless effort goes beyond his regular work hours, to appear at community events that support the Food Bank.
