Volunteers are the life blood of foodbanks. Your skills could be just what we need.
Volunteers are the driving force behind foodbanks. There are thousands of volunteers across the UK, helping The Trussell Trust Foodbank Network get emergency food to people in crisis. We want you to enjoy volunteering and there are lots of ways to get involved. Whatever role you choose, you will make a real difference to the life of someone in crisis.
We need help to weigh, sort and store donated food before it’s made into parcels for clients to collect. You could help in this vital work to ensure we always have the right food available.
HELPING AT A FOODBANK CENTRE
Meet clients and give out food parcels. Have an informal chat with clients over a cup of tea, to discuss their situation and signpost to further support.
Are you free 10 am – 1 pm on one morning each week to help in our foodbank centre?
If so, please come in any morning from Monday to Friday to fill in a volunteer form and be shown around the warehouse. Our volunteer coordinator, Carol, will then discuss with you which team you could join. You could help in our vital work to ensure we have the right food available at all times.
Contact us on email@example.com for more details and arrange a visit to the warehouse – we’d love to meet you!
