Corsham Foodbank – Get involved
We are a group of local people aged between 16 and 80+ with varying abilities and skills. Some work full time or part time, some are retired and others are studying, we come from all walks of life. Everyone volunteers their time and experience to our community with compassion and an understanding of those we serve.
Our motto is:-
‘LOCAL PEOPLE HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE’
What do our volunteers do?
All the donations of food we receive come in during our opening hours on Tuesdays from 10.00-11.30 and Saturdays from 10.00 to 12 noon.
We mark all our tinned, dried and packet food with its “best before” date to ensure that we don’t give anyone out of date goods and store the food in our cupboard space. If a client visits the foodbank, volunteers will make up the bags of food to be issued, according to pre-determined lists.
We will endeavour to accommodate dietary needs. Just let us know what your requirements are and we will see what we have in our cupboards.
How do I become a volunteer?
You could either visit the foodbank during our opening hours or ring the mobile number 07788 115095. One of our Trustees will then meet you and talk about what we do and and how you could help.
Will I receive training?
Yes, an initial induction will be given, including the health and safety advice, instruction for dealing with vulnerable adults and children and the need for maintaining confidentiality of our clients.
