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

Volunteers can sign up for morning or afternoon shifts, on an ad hoc or regular basis, and will be part of a team that helps to sort 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 foodheroes@fareshare.org.uk or complete the form on the right.
