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.

Warehouse volunteer

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. Our warehouse is currently only operating during the working week, Mon to Friday 10am to 1pm.

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. Our foodbank centres are open every morning and volunteering would be 10.30-1.30pm.

Volunteer Speakers

If you love going out and about meeting new groups and speaking to people then this role is for you. We are looking for volunteers who would be willing to give talks about foodbank to local groups who contact us, and help with school assemblies during the harvest festival period.

If you are interested in volunteering please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you! Please note most of our volunteering opportunities are during the working day so please let us know when you are available when contacting us.
