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
Meet customers and give out food parcels and any extras we offer. Help packing the bags. Or, after some additional training, have an informal chat with customers to discuss their situation and signpost to further support.
Helping at the warehouse
Help sort the donations into our crates by category and date and make sure that we’ve got enough of everything we need. Prepare the orders that need to go to our centres to restock them every week.
Helping to pick up donations
If you’ve got a car we would love to hear from you. We regularly need to go and pick up donations from supermarkets, schools, churches, businesses and private individuals.
If you are interested in volunteering please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
