Warehouse Volunteer

Our warehouse volunteers are at the heart of what we do. Our team is responsible for sorting, storing and recording the food we get delivered to our warehouse. They also assemble food orders for our charity members across the South West. Every day is different, and you’ll be part of a fun, welcoming team. There’s something for people of all abilities!

There is a great work environment at FareShare South West. Everyone from top to bottom at FSSW is friendly. My responsibilities change every day I am here, and I enjoy representing a charity which supports our community.

Van Driver

Our van drivers are vital to the work we do. Drivers make sure our food gets delivered to charity members in Bath, Bristol, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Somerset. You must be over 18 to do this role, have a full, clean licence and be confident driving a 3.5 tonne van.

Volunteering here is a helpful way to spend my week now that I am retired. As a van driver I enjoy seeing the range of charities out there that FSSW delivers food to. The staff and other volunteers are very supportive here.

Delivery assistants help drivers deliver food to our member charities

It's crazy the amount of food that is wasted, and this is such a simple concept of bring it all together to redistribute. You can really see what goes on from start to finish.

Cycling volunteer

Cycling volunteers take our power-assisted bikes out into Bristol to deliver smaller orders to local charities.

It's fun, I love riding the electric bike. I love dealing with member charities and it keeps me fit. I'm really keen on stopping good food going to landfill, so this small contribution makes me feel good!
Veronica, cycling volunteer

FareShare is the only charity to take food from the wholesale level of the food industry

The vast majority of surplus occurs before food even gets to the supermarket. Each FareShare regional centre takes that food and redistributes to those in need. FareShare Go is our supermarket collection service, which deals with supermarket-level surplus.
