The work our volunteers carry outWAREHOUSE OPERATIVE
Warehouse volunteers help to weigh, sort and store donated food before it’s made into parcels for clients to collect.
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.
Our online activity needs constant attention. Monitoring social media and regular website updates.
We have food donation points at some local supermarkets, the donated goods from these needs to be collected and brought back for sorting.
