Foodbank Request for Volunteers

We have some volunteer positions to fill at the Harrogate District Foodbank. We have been serving the local community for the last 6 years with a team of 60+ faithful volunteers but some of those are now moving on to pastures new and we are also seeing increased usage of our service so we need more and more volunteers to help us run the sessions. 

We are a friendly group of volunteers who have enjoyed getting to know each other of the years as well as finding fulfilment in serving the clients, not just giving them food but also speaking hope and love into their lives and by sign posing them to other organisations who could help.

What would be required?

– Availability on Mondays from 10-1 in Knaresborough or on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10-1 in Harrogate. (Sessions run 10.30-12.30)

– Willingness to talk and pray with the clients who come in and to treat them with dignity and respect. 

– Unpacking boxes of food to stock the cupboards and packing bags of food to be given to clients.

– The ability to work well in a team

– Provide two references

Full training will be provided before starting.

If you feel you would like to join this team then please email us at info@harrogatedistrict.foodbank.org.uk with your name and address so we can send you an application pack.  

We look forward to hearing from you. Lucy
