Systematic thinkers needed!

 We have seen an increase in the number of people needing to use the Foodbank in Bath. The smooth running of our warehouse is crucial to ensure that we’re able to supply the distribution centres with food.

Our Foodbank warehouse is currently based at a site in Batheaston with a plan to move to a new site in Oldfield Park in the summer 2020. This is an exciting time to support the Foodbank and make a tangible difference to the community of Bath.

We are looking for two volunteers to join our team to help co-ordinate our warehouse and our stock. If you are organised, flexible and a good communicator then we would love to hear from you!

You will receive lots of support and join a fantastic team of committed volunteers who make the Foodbank possible. The time commitment is 4-5 hours per week, on weekday mornings.
