Community Volunteering – Find the opportunity that is right for you!
Our community volunteers are individuals from the local community and beyond, who give up their valuable time in support of our work.
They volunteer for shifts to suit their individual circumstances, with some people volunteering as frequently as every week and others opting for adhoc shifts. We are grateful for every single hour that people choose to give up.
The current roles we are recruiting for are listed below:
- Unloading deliveries
- Creating mixed trays of food for our charities
- Quality control – checking and grading fresh produce
- Other warehouse tasks
Due to the nature of our operation, the Warehouse Assistant role is quite physical and requires standing, walking and lifting.
Manual handling training will be provided.
To volunteer with us you must be: 18+ years
Our operation is spread across two London locations:
- Acton (W3 7QE)
- New Spitalfields Market (E10)
