Volunteering Opportunities

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.

Urgent Need

We need volunteers for a supermarket collection at Tesco Bristol East Extra – near IKEA on Thursday and Friday 19th and 20th November 2020. Couples or same household pairs would work really well. COVID safe procedures will be explained and safety of volunteers and the public will be paramount.

Food Delivery Drivers

We need a person to deliver food boxes direct to clients in the area around Fishponds. You will need a current driving licence, serviceable vehicle with current MOT, Tax and insurance. Mileage will be reimbursed. These are covered Tuesday and Friday daytimes in two hour slots delivering within 2 miles of Easton.

Warehousing

We need a couple of volunteers to do two hour shifts on a weekday evening in Easton only

Van Drivers

We need a couple of van drivers available weekdays between 11 and 4 to help shift food – usually about a three hour shift.

Currently we cannot conduct supermarket collections.

Most of our volunteer roles are opt in ones using an online calendar – this means you choose the dates you can be there and don’t require you to be there every session.

If you are interested in volunteering please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you! Please tick foodbank box and state details of what you are applying for in the additional comments box.
