Ivybridge Foodbank

We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. However we need your help to make this happen. Your gift of financial support, time, business partnership and/or food can make a real difference.

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.

The work our volunteers carry out

WAREHOUSE OPERATIVE

Warehouse volunteers help to weigh, sort and store donated food before it’s made into parcels for clients to collect.


VOUCHER CO-ORDINATOR

Foodbanks work with front line agencies who in turn refer clients to foodbanks. Some foodbanks have over 100 referral partners, our volunteers coordinate the issuing and distribution of vouchers to these agencies. Once the vouchers are redeemed the data they contain needs to be added to our central database.


HELPING AT OUR 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.


INTERNET CO-ORDINATOR

Our online activity needs constant attention. Monitoring social media and regular website updates.


SUPERMARKET COLLECTIONS

We have food donation points at some local supermarkets, the donated goods from these needs to be collected and brought back for sorting.
