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.

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.
Support from primary and secondary schools across Thurrock has made a huge difference, especially at harvest time, but we’re not sure how many schools really know about what we do. We’d love to show them more and get them involved in making a difference in their local area. Could you help us get to know our schools better and help them see how they can get involved?
If you are interested in volunteering please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
