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.
Helping at a foodbank centre
We have many roles within the foodbank, suitable for volunteers of of varying backgrounds, including admin, greeting clients, sorting and packaging food parcels, and driving our van; we will find ways to utilise your skills.
If you are looking for personal interaction, chatting with clients on a one to one basis, you can be a a listening ear, and signpost clients to relevant services that may improve their situation. (We do not give advice).
