National Volunteer Week: celebrating our wonderful volunteers

20-26 May, 2019

Volunteers are vital to the work that we do. Last year, 2721 individuals volunteered almost 30,000 hours of time to Foodbank Victoria, helping to distribute the equivalent of 15 million meals.

“From packing orders of food and grocery items in our Yarraville warehouse; delivering hampers to those in need; distributing fresh food at our pop-up markets; or assisting with important office duties – our volunteers are truly the backbone of our organisation” –  Dave McNamara, Foodbank Victoria CEO (read media release here).

To put it simply, our volunteers are truly making a world of difference not just here at Foodbank, but for many hungry Victorians right across the state. And for that, we say THANK YOU!

To celebrate National Volunteer Week we asked some of our regular volunteers to share what they get up to when they’re not fighting hunger…
