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.
Thank you to those who have already contacted us about volunteering since the Covid-19 response measures were introduced!
