Volunteering

Volunteers are the lifeblood of foodbanks. Your skills could be just what we need. If you are 18 or over and want to get involved, read on!

Help during coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic

We would like to thank the public for their kind offers of help with volunteering during the Covid 19 crisis. We currently have enough volunteers to operate and are not accepting individual applications at the present time.

To reduce exposure for our volunteers, we are using family/household groups to operate shifts and we would welcome volunteer groups who currently live together who are interested in getting involved over the next 12 weeks. Email us: [email protected]

How can you help?

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. If you’re offering to work from home there are admin jobs you could do in your time. Whatever role you choose, you will make a real difference to the life of someone in crisis.

Saturday collection volunteers

Helpers are needed to staff a collection table in Stretford Mall every Saturday 10am -2pm. Would you be prepared to go on a rota?

If you are interested in helping please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you. Email us: [email protected]

Warehouse volunteers

Helpers are needed to sort stock in our warehouse in Stretford, this normally on a Wednesday between 10am – 1pm and volunteers work on a rota system so don’t need to work every week if not available.

If you are interested in helping please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you. Email us: [email protected]

Helping at a 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. (Thankfully we are well-staffed in this area at the moment).
