You can use the find a food bank map to contact them directly, or register your interest on our volunteering page. Many food banks currently don’t need food bank centre volunteers, but they’ll be able to tell you what roles are available and how else you could help.

You can make a real difference in the fight against poverty.

There are over 28,000 volunteers across the Trussell Trust network  making a real difference in the fight against poverty and hunger in the UK.

Without these amazing volunteers, food banks in the Trussell Trust network simply wouldn’t exist – and the hundreds of thousands of people in crisis they help each year wouldn’t receive the support they need.

Whether you want to commit a few days a week, or a few hours a month, your support can make a real difference. Find out more about all of our volunteering opportunities below.
