BE A VOLUNTEER - WE NEED:
People to pack food parcels
People to sort the food we receive
People to help us with publicity
People to help us with fundraising
People to help us pick up donations from collection points (a driver with a van would be ideal!)
If you have a skill or interest that you think may benefit the Food Bank - please just get in touch to talk with us about how you could help
We can give a short talk to your group about some of the issues facing the people we help, and the work of Bradford Metropoltan Food Bank
We can arrange a session especially catered to your group to look around the Food Bank and help sort out and organise the donations of food we receive, as well as make up a batch of food parcels to be distributed to people in need
We are very keen to establish links with retailers, food manufacturers or distrbutors who may have non perishable stock that is close to or recently past its best before date. We can take large pallette loads of stock and help you avoid paying charges for sending perfectly edible food into landfill. We can work flexibly with you around the practical arrangements such as transport etc. Please go to our 'Contact' page.
Every fortnight we receive fantastic support from Guru Nanak Dev Ji and Gudwara Singh Temples who each bring us a car boot full of food!
Simply ask us for a collection bin and one of our posters with our logos and list of what we need...and off you go! We can collect from your place of work, your gym, your school, church, mosque, temple or community centre - anywhere where you've got room to collect! We'd also really love you to bring what you've collected down to us at the food bank - where you can see what we do and how your efforts go to supporting those in need across the Metropolitan District of Bradford
