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, date 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 in the right places available at all times.
Particularly, we also need those able to lift and carry and/or those with large cars for transporting between distribution centres and storage centres.
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.
If you are interested in volunteering please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
