This activity is brought to you by The Union in partnership with Manchester Community Central
About The Foodbank
“The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.”
We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
About The Role
We need 1000 tins of fruit a month - you can help us get them! We are looking for collection drivers - who will collect donations from across central manchester and bring them back to our warehouse. This can be carried out during the day, on week days and can be planned by the volunteers themselves. We also have occassional weekend collects from the Mancheseter City football ground.
You will need to have a UK driving licenses and access to a roadworthy, insured vehicle. You wll need to be able to physically lift and carry donatons to and from your vehicle
Milage expenses will be paid
