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.
General volunteer roles
We always have roles available in our warehouse / behind the scenes. 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 have the right food available at all times at our depot in Ruxley Lane. PLEASE NOTE WE ARE CURRENTLY FULL AT THIS TIME – JANUARY 2020.
We also welcome seasonal present wrapping, ad hoc driving, furniture collections/deliveries, manning our stands at community events or being involved with charity collection days, and much more. Do get in touch to find out more. If you would like to hold a fundraising event for us, please let us know on firstname.lastname@example.org We can supply you with donation tins and publicity information.
Helping at a foodbank centre
At our 5 distribution centres our volunteers meet clients and give out food parcels. They have an informal chat with clients over a cup of tea, to discuss their situation and signpost to further support. If you are interested in finding out more, please email Jackie on email@example.com
If you are interested in any of the above roles please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
