Volunteers are the life blood of food 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. See below for details of the main volunteering roles. Whatever role you choose, you will make a real difference to the life of someone in crisis.

We are looking for more delivery drivers so that we can continue to offer support to those clients that are unable to leave their house to come to the foodbank to collect their food. We are able to reimburse mileage costs to you.


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.


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.


Chipping Barnet Foodbank constantly needs funds to keep it moving forward. Please volunteer to help us if you have experience of charity fundraising or are keen to learn.


We often receive requests for volunteering opportunities from people undertaking the DoE programme.  At any one time, we are able to offer two DofE students the opportunity to help the foodbank by sorting and packing with us on a Monday evening. At present we are full until June 2024. If you would like to go on the waiting list or would like to be put down for June 2024, please email Peter Mc Mahon, at: [email protected].
