Type of organisation: Charity
Location: Hammersmith & Fulham
We collect donations of food from the public via supermarket collections and school/ business donations. We then issue this food to hungry Hammersmith & Fulham residents who have a food voucher. Vouchers are issued to them by schools, doctors, social workers and other local authority/ charity sources ( to ensure that only people experiencing a crisis receive vouchers). We also help signpost these clients onto the relevant department/ charity to help solve the underlying issue.
What will I be doing?
We have a regular Monday afternoon food sorting event where we received bags of tins from the general public and we need to sort it into our warehouse, ready to give out to clients. Also we have a bi-monthly food collection from local superstores where volunteers stand outside Tesco/Sainsburys and hand out shopping lists to customers and then collect the food from them on their exit from the shop. This happens on Fridays and Saturdays
Will any manual labour be involved? Yes
