Hounslow Community Foodbox

Current opportunities

FoodBox are looking for volunteers to help fill these roles.

Frontline volunteer – Volunteering at either the Rose Community Centre or the Brickfield Community Centre (both are in Brentford), you will create food parcels for people in need, taking into account their individual requirements. (Number of people, dietary requirements, cooking facilities etc.) You will also help with sorting and logging donations, stock rotation and stocktaking.

Driver – If you own a vehicle, and you and that vehicle meet our specifications, then you can deliver food parcels to people in need, collect donations from supermarkets, and various other collection points. For this role you will need to confirm that:

  • You have a full driving licence, no bans or convictions.
  • Your car is registered, insured and taxed; has a current MOT certificate (if your vehicle needs one); is roadworthy.
  • Your car insurance covers you while volunteering (insurers who have signed up to ABI’s volunteer driving – motor insurance commitment do not charge an extra premium but you may need to notify them – check here).
  • You are willing to undergo a basic DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check.

Young volunteer – You don’t have to be an adult to get involved with FoodBox. We welcome young volunteers (accompanied by a parent or guardian if you’re under 16) to help our Saturday team prepare food parcels at the community centres. You might be part of a HeadStart programme or Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme but it’s not essential to participate.  At the moment even though the number of young volunteers who are able to come to FoodBox on Saturday's is restricted because of social distancing rules please register with us if you're interested in volunteering.
