Whether working in our warehouse sorting donated food, packing crates, getting it loaded onto our vans for daily deliveries, driving vans, serving as drivers’ mates, collecting food from supermarkets and producers etc., there are many ways in which volunteers help. In fact, we often describe our 50 plus volunteers as the beating heart of our organisation because we couldn’t do what we do without them.

If you’d like to apply we’d love to hear from you. You can do so easily by completing our online Volunteer Application Form.

Supply Food

We are happy to receive almost all kinds of food from retailers, farmers, food producers and transport companies. These include fresh fruit and vegetables; fresh meat and fish; dairy produce such as milk, yoghurt, butter, cheese; drinks such as fruit juices, smoothies, bottled water; ambient (dry) foods; and frozen produce.

We take daily collections from some shops and outlets in Exeter, and are able to take goods in bulk quantities. Our warehouse allows us to store dry food, fresh food and frozen food.
