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.
Tesco Collection Day
Can you help to meet and greet shoppers and to staff the collection during our yearly neighbourhood collection events. We will have a collection at the beginning of December 2017 (Thursday – Saturday). If you are able to help you can sign up right now by clicking the link below. Helping in this way is one of the best ways you can support the foodbank and help local people in crisis. We have split the time in to one-hour slots. If you volunteer we will send a briefing pack by email prior to the event.
Helping at a foodbank centre
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.
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!
