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 to collect donations from supermarkets and other organisations
- Collecting donations from supermarkets and other organisations and taking them to the warehouse.
- Warehouse volunteers sort and pack food so that it’s ready to be delivered to our satellite distribution centres. If you apply for a position in the warehouse you must be able to lift and shift!
If you are interested in becoming a supermarket collector or a warehouse volunteer, please download and fill in our WDC Application Form 2019, and return to our Warehouse Co-ordinator, Miriam Bowen, at Warwick District Foodbank, St Mary’s Church, St Mary’s Rd, Leamington Spa, CV31 1JW. We’d love to hear from you!
Please note that the foodbank does not operate in the evenings or at weekends so unfortunately we have no volunteering opportunities at these times. We also have a waiting list of people wanting to volunteer at our satellite distribution centres so we’re sorry to say that, at present, we have no client-facing vacancies.
