VOLUNTEER WITH FOODBANK

The Foodbank team is small and we rely heavily on teams and individuals who generously give their time to help us get food to the people who need it. We have different volunteer opportunities available in each state, if you would like to volunteer select your state below:

IMPORTANT UPDATE:

We have been overwhelmed with messages of support from the WA community, and would like to thank you for thinking of us at this time.

Due to the large volume of volunteering requests we have received at our Perth Branch, we are currently only seeking extra volunteers on Monday-Thursday. To express your interest, please email Malcolm.Rayment@foodbankwa.org.au.

You can also sign up to our E-Newsletter to stay up to date with any urgent volunteering opportunities.

Volunteering your time is an amazing gift

We rely on individual volunteers and corporate groups to help us tackle the growing issue of hunger here in Western Australia.  As demand for food relief continues to grow, volunteers remain vital to our success.

You might prefer to volunteer with us on a one-off basis or join our growing team of regular volunteers that donate one or more days of their time every week.

Corporate volunteering can be a great team building exercise while giving back and helping the most vulnerable members of our community at the same time. To find out more about our corporate volunteering opportunities, please email wa.info@foodbankwa.org.au.

WAREHOUSE VOLUNTEERS

Individual and corporate volunteers help us sort groceries, pack hampers and pick orders to ensure our charity partners receive the food they need. The warehouse can take up to twelve volunteers and operates Monday to Friday 9.00am – 3.00pm. No experience is necessary and there is not a lot of heavy lifting.

COMMUNITY KITCHEN VOLUNTEERS

Small teams of up to six corporate volunteers work alongside our fully qualified chef each day in our Community Kitchen to prepare, cook or pack frozen meals. With our full contingent of volunteers, we can distribute up to 1,000 meals per week.  Our kitchen operates Monday to Friday 8.30am – 3.00pm and no experience is necessary.
