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 people 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 people that come to our distribution sessions and give out food parcels. Have an informal chat over a cup of tea, to discuss their situation and signpost to further support.
Picking up donated food
Occasional picking up donations or transporting food between our foodbank centres
One off volunteering
Helping at supermarket collections or at other one-off events such as Christmas Day dinner
Our local website needs constant attention. Could your digital skills help communicate our message to a local and global audience? You will need to know a little about websites and ideally have experience of using WordPress (though training and support is available).
If you are interested in volunteering please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
