Volunteers are the life blood and driving force behind foodbanks. Your skills could be just what we need.
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 in the life of someone in crisis.

We need drivers to help deliver food parcels to our local foodbank centres and pick up food donations from supermarkets and different destinations around Redbridge. If you are over 25, have been driving for over a year and have no points on your licence then please apply.
As a Food bank centre volunteer, you will play a vital role in giving direct support to people who use food banks, meeting and greeting people coming into the food bank, making them feel comfortable and providing further signposting support where appropriate.
