Food warehouse volunteer

This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date.

Our FareShare Glasgow and the West of Scotland warehouse saves good quality surplus food from going to waste and redistributes it to charities working with some of the most vulnerable people in the community, including homeless people, elderly people, children, refugees and people suffering mental and physical health problems. We are always looking for volunteers to help out in the warehouse - receiving deliveries, shelving stock, maintaining inventories and sorting orders. You can watch a short video on our warehouse and how we support the local community here: https://www.moveon.org.uk/videos You can volunteer in the warehouse either individually or as a group.
