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 that partners with local churches to give emergency food to people in need. We welcome and consider applications from members of the public irrespective of an individuals beliefs. It is worth noting, however, that one specific role in the distributing sessions run by local churches requires volunteers to have a Christian faith and be willing to pray with people. This is in order to fulfil specific responsibilities and requirements attached to that role. Numerous other opportunities exist within York Foodbank to volunteer that are open for all to apply to.

Due to the recent number of volunteer enquiries and applications received, we are temporarily closed to new volunteer applications and will re-open at the beginning of April 2020. If you are interested in becoming a Foodbank volunteer and would like us to contact you at that time, we would welcome you letting us know. Please send your name and email address to us at Thank you!
