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.
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.
Join the Events Team
Cannot commit to regular volunteering, but you would still like to support the foodbank? Join our Events Team, and help out if and when you can, to help us raise awareness of the foodbank on the Isle of Wight.
We are looking for fashion gurus who are able to help us to sort and select donated items, enabling us to turn fashion into food! We are especially grateful for anyone who can assist us on Wednesday mornings.
If you are interested in volunteering please fill in our volunteer application form, we’d love to hear from you!
