Warehouse Volunteer


The Bread and Butter Thing runs mobile affordable food clubs, supporting people in low income communities to feed themselves and their families well. Every week we offer our members access to fruit and veg, cupboard staples and fridge favourites at deeply discounted prices. But that is just the start.

Our mission is to unleash the power of food and ignite long-lasting change in struggling neighbourhoods across the UK. We build bridges out of food deserts, bringing nutritious, affordable food to the centre of the UK’s most deprived communities and nourish them. We change lives. And we give voice to the people who use us – our members. We are the everyday – the bread and butter - baked into the heart of our communities.

We need you as a warehouse volunteer, you will be a key part in what we do to help us deliver a great, diverse selection of food for our members!

This role is based in Chilton but open to all of Durham and surrounding towns to apply - We Pay Travel Expenses!!
