Volunteers are the life blood of foodbanks. Your skills could be just what we need.
Clapham Park Foodbank is open between 11am and 2pm on Tuesdays and Fridays. Foremost, we need the help of local people who can regularly commit to either of these times.
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.
Foodbank Centre & Storeroom 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.
We would also need you to help during opening hours to meet our clients and to give out our food parcels. Have an informal chat with clients over a cup of tea, to discuss their situation and signpost to further support.
Foodbanks work with front line agencies who in turn refer clients to foodbanks. Some foodbanks have over 100 referral partners and in this role you will be coordinating the issuing and distribution of vouchers to these agencies. Once the vouchers are redeemed the data they contain needs to be added to our central database. Full training and support is available.
We need help to contact local schools to motivate them to support our Foodbank. As one of our school liaison volunteers, you will build on our existing partnerships with teachers, outreach workers and parents.
If you are interested in volunteering please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
