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. Whilst we have no requirement in Crowborough for volunteers in specific roles at present, the following are typical areas where volunteers are presently assisting. However, please enquire about helping in any way you might like, as we are sure we will fit you in.
Warehouse volunteers help to weigh, sort and store donated food before it’s made into parcels for clients to collect. This is 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. Make up food parcels from stock in the warehouse ready for distribution.
