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.

York Foodbank is Christian charity and ministry, working in conjunction with the local church. As such although we welcome applications from members of the public irrespective of an individuals beliefs, volunteer applicants specifically wanting to help out at a food distribution centre need to be Christians. This is in order to fulfil specific responsibilities and requirements attached to that role. However, numerous other opportunities exist within York Foodbank to volunteer that are open for all to apply to.

If you are interested in volunteering for York Foodbank please fill out the Application Form or email us at for more information.
