There are many roles for which volunteers are needed:

  • Sorting the food
  • Collecting it at special supermarket collection events
  • Transporting the food
  • Welcoming those who use the food banks, chatting with them and signposting them to further help
  • Providing tea and buns
  • Keeping stock records and doing stock-takes
  • Fundraising
  • Praying
  • Cleaning
  • Keeping up financial records and database, website and other IT roles.

Whatever people can offer the Food Bank can use!

As part of a nationwide Christian charity, Leeds South Food Bank is committed to ensuring high standards are maintained and the training is an essential part of this commitment.
