FoodBox is a local community project where everyone is a volunteer. We understand that whilst emergency food can’t solve poverty it can provide a lifeline while other issues in people’s lives are addressed. Some of our volunteers were once helped by FoodBox to get them through difficult times and now volunteer so that they can help others.
We are inclusive and open to anyone who shares our values of making a positive impact on our community. Volunteers often find the experience enriching and it can help to build their own confidence. There’s always an opportunity to learn new skills and share your own skills with others.
Many volunteers come to us through Ealing & Hounslow Giving where local people can find opportunities to support their community.
FoodBox welcomes young volunteers. This might be part of a HeadStart programme or Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme but that’s not necessary.
If you like being in a friendly, empathetic and professional environment where everyone is committed to providing the best service and your voice can be heard, why not join FoodBox? You’ll receive an induction and training to help you prepare for volunteering. Everyone gives their time freely to FoodBox but we will reimburse your expenses incurred while volunteering.
