- Some people give food
- Some people give essential non-food items
- Some people give money - and we thank them so much for their support, we couldn't help local families in need without your gifts.
But some people give more - they give their time - only a couple of hours each week - but - unless they did - the foodbank could not operate. Due to an increase in the demand for our services we need a few more special people - a few more volunteers. Can you help?
Volunteers are the driving force behind the foodbank. There are over 50 volunteers helping The Wokingham Foodbank to get emergency food to people in crisis, in fact everybody involved from the Manager down is a volunteer, we have no paid staff.
We want you to enjoy volunteering and there are lots of ways to get involved. Whatever role you choose, you will make a real difference to the life of someone in crisis. All we ask is that you commit to a regular 2 hour session each week.
At the moment we are very blessed to be fully staffed, but there are other organisations in Wokingham that could really do with your help. You can check them out here – The Volunteer Centre
