Volunteer

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.

November 3-day Tesco collection

We need volunteers to give an hour or two on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd of November. We will be at Tesco on Prince Avenue handing out shopping lists to encourage customers to give to the foodbank. If you are interested, please email admin@southend.foodbank.org.uk or call us on 07456426203.

Warehouse volunteer

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.

Drivers

We need drivers to transport food weekly from our warehouse to a distribution centre. If you can have access to a vehicle and can help, we would appreciate it.

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.

If you are interested in volunteering please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
