Volunteers are the life blood of foodbanks. Your skills could be just what we need.
Volunteers are the driving force behind the Gateshead Foodbank. It’s our great team of volunteers who help the Gateshead Foodbank supply emergency food to people in crisis. There are lots of ways to get involved. Whatever role you choose, you will make a real difference to the life of someone in crisis.
We need help to weigh, sort and store donated food before it’s made into parcels for clients to collect. You could help in this vital work to ensure we have the right food available at all times.
Helping at a foodbank centre
Meet clients and give out food parcels. Have an informal chat with clients over a cup of tea, to discuss their situation and signpost to further support.
