Volunteer opportunities

Norwich foodbank has a tremendous response to its appeal for volunteers and most roles are covered. But Project manager Hannah Worsley says: "There are many and varied volunteer roles within Norwich foodbank and we would be pleased to discuss these roles with you if you are interested in getting involved."

You can arrange a food collection where you are - posters and help available

Or help at one of our supermarket collections - email or ring 01603 251733 if you are interested.

Please download the application form below, complete it and return to us by email or post and we'll contact you to talk about the roles available. Please do bear in mind that our warehouse and distribution centres are the most popular areas for volunteering and we currently have a full complement in these areas. However, ad hoc and project based support is welcome! Thank you for your support.

If you have any questions, please call the office on 01603 251733 or email
