Volunteers are crucial to the operation of Bow Foodbank.
Without the support of volunteers, we could not operate the Foodbank and provide its much needed services to those in crisis. We are particularly grateful to the ongoing support of students from Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), who have set up a Bow Foodbank Volunteering Group to support our work.
Reception and record keeping
We need volunteers to greet our clients, explain how the Foodbank works, and keep records of who we help, when and what we provide. If you enjoy working with people and have good administrative skills, we would like to hear from you via our contact page.
We need volunteers to help sort the food we receive, and restock the Foodbank. If you are willing to help lift and carry cases of food from place to place, then we would like to hear from you via our contact page.
Our clients may be in distress and need someone to listen to them. If you are a good listener and want to help people in crisis, then we would like to hear from you via our contact page.
If you enjoy baking or are just happy to make someone a cup of tea who is cold and hungry, then we need volunteers to provide our clients with tea, coffee and biscuits/cake while we sort out what they need. If you would like to make cake or biscuits for our clients each week, and serve them hot drinks, then we would like to hear from you via our contact page.
