Volunteers are the life blood of foodbanks. Your skills could be just what we need.
We love our volunteers. They 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 have the right food available at all times.
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.
We need help at our supermarket collections which happen once a month. It involves face-to face contact with the public, giving out food lists and receiving and organising the donations ready for the warehouse team to collect.
If you are interested in volunteering and you can spare some time to give to Foodbank, please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
