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.
Here at the Dorking Area Foodbank we have an amazing set of volunteers, working together to get emergency food to those in crisis in our local community.
At the moment we have vacancies to volunteer in the following areas:
- We need help to weigh, sort and store donated food on a Monday or Wednesday session between 2 and 4pm. This is based at our local Dorking Warehouse.
- We also need a volunteer to help out fortnightly at the weekly restock, again on a Monday afternoon between 1.55 and about 3pm. This will be assisting other volunteers moving quite a lot of food from our warehouse to our distribution centre, unpacking and restocking the shelves.
We need a volunteer to take responsibility for writing thank you letters and emails throughout the year to our amazing donors .
Distribution Centre Thursday Volunteers
We are looking for a couple of new volunteers to join our Thursday afternoon foodbank teams to work directly with people seeking the help of the foodbank. You would need to be available once or twice a month on a Thursday afternoon between 2 and 4.30pm.
Please get in touch if you are interested in any of these volunteering opportunities.
