Volunteer to Take Away the Hunger

Thank you so much for offering to volunteer and help us grow the partnership between Foodbank and Y Waste to capture surplus food for vulnerable people in the community. What we need is to recruit food merchants (cafes, restaurants and takeaway outlets) that are still open for business and may have excess food at the end of the trading day. In particular, we need them in areas where food relief charities have ceased services due to COVID-19.

Here are two ways in which you can help.

Download this flyer and give it to food outlets when you next pick up a coffee or a takeaway meal or that you simply know are still trading in your neighbourhood.

Fill in the form below and we’ll send you a kit which will provide you with everything you need to help from the comfort of your own home by making some calls to food outlets in specific areas of need.
