Volunteers at FareShare LondonJoin Jennie, Eleanor and our team of “food heroes” at our London Centre

The FareShare London warehouse in Deptford is seeking dozens of volunteers who can spare time during the week to help ensure that good, surplus food gets to the people who need it most.

Volunteers can sign up for morning, afternoon or early evening shifts, on a regular basis, and will be part of a team that helps to sort and deliver food, in-put food information on the computer system and even chat with the charities about their food needs for the coming week.

FareShare London will cover reasonable travel costs, within zones 1 – 4.

To get involved contact volunteerlondon@fareshare.org.uk or complete the form on the right.
