Foodbank Pantry Fundraising Volunteer

Bishop Auckland

We are always looking for volunteers in our busy hub in Bishop Auckland where we run our Community Pantry and Food Bank. We are looking for people who can bake, cook, do general administration tasks and help with preparing for events.


Every week we cook and bake fresh goods to sell in our Community Pantry. If cooking's not your thing you could prepare ingredients or wash up and tidy.
Our Foodbank is currently open three days a week asnd is always busy. We need help to pack food parcels for Foodbank customers and often emergency packs for those in immediate crisis.
We have a busy office area where we need help in answering calls, taking messages, and general administration tasks. We often have members of the public call in for support or advice and aim to provide a friendly face and welcoming environment.
We often are preparing for events where we need help in putting together gift packs, raffles, tombolas and necessary paperwork and equipment.
