Volunteers are the life blood of foodbanks. Your skills could be just what we need.
At the moment we are unable to take anymore volunteers due to distancing rules
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.
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.
Our local website needs constant attention. Could your digital skills help communicate our message to a local and global audience? You will need to know a little about websites and ideally have experience of using WordPress (though training and support is available).
Van Delivery and Collection
We collect food donated to our distribution centres and from many Supermarkets and businesses across West Lothian on a weekly basis. We need people who can either drive the van or lift heavy crates in / out, one or two days per week.
If you are interested in volunteering please email us at [email protected], we’d love to hear from you!
