FairShare Southwest Volunteering

Type: Admin Support, Food / grocery delivery, Fundraising, Transportation

Location: All of Plymouth

FareShare is a unique charity fighting hunger and its underlying causes by redistributing surplus food to hundreds of local charities across the UK. By ensuring good food is not wasted, we turn an environmental problem into a solution. FareShare delivers environmental benefits by reducing food waste while supporting over 10,000 charitable organisations across the UK to feed 100,000 people every week. Last year this food generated a saving for UK charities of just over £28 million.

We are launching a FareShare service in Devon and Cornwall and aim to provide vital supplies to over 100 charities, schools, and projects across the region.

FareShare South West has recently opened its doors in Plymouth to redistribute vital surplus food to front line projects across Devon and Cornwall. Our warehouse volunteers are at the heart of what we do. Our team is responsible for sorting, storing, and recording the food we get delivered to our warehouse. They also assemble food orders for our charity members across the region. Every day is different, and you’ll be part of a fun, welcoming team. There’s something for people of all abilities! We are looking for volunteers for both morning and afternoon shifts Monday to Friday our warehouse operating hours are 08:30 – 17:00.

The following volunteer roles will be available:

• Volunteer Back up Driver
• Volunteer Driver Assistant
• Warehouse assistant
• Admin support

These roles will play an important part of the project ensuring that vital food supplies reach our members, who in turn work with thousands of people across the county providing hot meals and food parcels to those that need it.
