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.
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.
Aston and Nechells Foodbank currently need another volunteer driver willing to use their own vehicle on a Tuesday morning to help move our replacement food stocks from our warehouse in Erdington to the distribution centres.
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.
We have up to 100 volunteers, all of whom need support and encouragement in helping deliver the Foodbank’s services. We are looking for an individual who can take this on and has the vision to help us recruit new volunteers, particularly from our local communities.
If you are interested in volunteering please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
