Due to such an amazing response from people wanting to get involved, we currently have all the volunteers we need for warehouse duties, parcel packing as well as driving and deliveries so are not taking on any new volunteers at this time. Please check back on this page in 2021 to see if the situation has changed and in the meantime we thank you for your support and interest.
If you have already submitted an application form but have not heard from us yet, we will be in touch. We are very busy so please be patient with us. We have been overwhelmed with offers of help, so it's taking a while to contact everyone. When we contact you, you'll be asked if you want to go on a reserve list so that we can reach out when slots do become available.
Please note: The warehouse, parcel packing and driver roles all involve a degree of lifting and carrying so volunteers will need good fitness levels.
In the meantime, there are other ways in which you can support us including donating food so we can keep our shelves properly stocked. See our Give Help/Donate Food page for an up-to-date shopping list of our most needed items and a list of local COLLECTION LOCATIONS which includes supermarkets, cafes, shops and our own South London Warehouse.
You could also consider hosting a fundraiser (check our Instagram fundraising highlights for examples of recent initiatives) or even donating financially on a regular basis to ensure we provide continuous support. Again, visit our Give Help page for further information on how to do this and do sign up to our newsletter (scroll down to the bottom of the page) for the latest updates from Norwood and Brixton Foodbank.
