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.

Raising funds from the community can be very rewarding and enjoyable.

We’d love to have a committed individual who can initiate and coordinate all our funding raising opportunities. This role would have flexible hours.

Volunteer drivers will be asked to collect regular food orders from the Foodbank warehouse in Chadsmoor and deliver to our distribution centres around Cannock and surrounding areas. Ideally, we would like volunteers to commit to 1 shift every week, on either a Tuesday, Thursday or Friday morning for a few hours. Drivers must have their own vehicle and be able to transport and lift crates of food up to 20kg. Currently, we are looking for more Foodbank drivers to help with the changes to our processes caused by COVID-19.
