Thanks but No volunteers needed right now. Check back in a month or follow us on our social media.

Volunteers are the driving force behind foodbanks. There are thousands of volunteers across the UK, helping Foodbanks get emergency food to people in crisis. Whatever the role, you will make a real difference to the life of someone in crisis.

No vacancies for volunteers at the moment. Follow us on Twitter for updates.

Alton foodbank volunteer roles are:

Warehouse volunteer

Our Warehouse volunteers weigh, sort and store donated food before it’s made into parcels for clients to collect. This vital work ensures we have the right food available at all times. The work requires lifting and shifting of boxes which can be heavy.

Helping at Alton foodbank centre

At our foodbank centre in Market Square, Alton our volunteers 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.

Voucher coordinator

Foodbanks work with front line agencies who refer clients to foodbanks. Our foodbank has about 50 referral partners and in this role you will be coordinating the issuing and distribution of vouchers to these agencies. Once the vouchers are redeemed the data they contain needs to be added to our central database. Full training and support is available.
