Foodbank Champions - Help at S6 Foodbank

This opportunity takes place until 30 Sep 2021.

S6 Foodbank supports over 1,200 local families every week with emergency food parcels from 9 sites across the city. This means processing 13 tonnes of food a week and they would love some extra help! See first hand how a food bank operates and the scale of the operation by helping for a morning sorting stock, packing bags and loading food for delivery.

Tuesday 28 or Wednesday 29 or Thursday 30 September, 9am - 1pm

When you click on Register Your Interest, you will receive an email with a Google Form - please fill this in to let us know which session you wish to book onto.

What skills do I need?

No specific skills required, but note it is a physical role. It would be helpful if you have a car and can volunteer on a Wednesday, as part of the role is to follow the van around to the different sites and help unload. This is NOT essential but please let us know if you are willing to drive as part of the role.

What will I gain?

First hand experience of how a food bank operates, and a glimpse of the current scale of food poverty. Meet other like-minded volunteers and help S6 Foodbank to support local families in crisis.

Training and support

Support and guidance will be provided by staff and volunteers on site.

Time commitment

Tuesday 28 or Wednesday 29 or Thursday 30 September, 9am - 1pm You can sign up for one or two sessions and if you enjoy it, there are opportunities for regular volunteering
