There are many volunteer roles within the Shrublands Trust especially as we start up new projects – some of these have been identified below.
Have you considered being a food champion? A what?
A food champion is someone who promotes, encourages and collects donated goods to our food bank. This could be by putting a collection box in your place of work, or encouraging your local supermarket / corner shop to put a collection box in their store which you monitor every so often, then bring the goods to us. For those who have busy lives but want to get involved this is an excellent way to do so.
Some other projects you might consider getting involved in:
Date labeling food
Articles for website & leaflets
Recipes, especially from food bank ingredients
Database data entry
Helping clients with I.T. (Digital Champion)
Whatever your skills are, we hope we can put them to good use. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
