Volunteers are the life blood of foodbanks. Your skills could be just what we need. We still need volunteers during Covid19 Pandemic
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.
Foodbanks work with front line organisations and local groups who in turn refer clients to foodbanks. Some foodbanks have over 100 referral partners and in this role you will be coordinating these referrers in making referrals. Once the referrals have been fulfilled, the relevant data needs to be added to our central database. Full training and support is available.
Helping at a foodbank centre
At the moment, all our volunteers have to maintain social distancing so volunteers are trained to work in a safe manner. If clients require further support, they will be directed to the CWAC Helpline.
