VOLUNTEER

Volunteers are essential to the running of the Food Bank.

We are very grateful to our dedicated team of volunteers who gather resources and who pack and deliver food parcels to people in need.

 

Our volunteers commit to one day every fortnight. They usually start around 11am and finish around 2pm on that day. The work involves packing food parcels and delivering them to people in need around the Nelson region. The parcels are heavy and our volunteers need to be able to lift these in and out of their car. 

Our volunteers are reimbursed for mileage. 

If you are interested in volunteering please contact us
