FareShare Community Hub

We have partnered with Do IT (the UK’s largest volunteering brokerage platform) to help you easily connect with volunteers.

How does it work?

Join the platform for free and create volunteer opportunities to get help with your FareShare food collections or any other roles within your organisation.

Your volunteer roles will be promoted to both FareShare volunteers and Do IT site users (which gets over 200,000 monthly visitors).

“The FareShare Community Volunteering Hub has been really useful for connecting us with volunteers.

I posted the opportunities in November 2020 and I received 10 applicants within a week, and more people has applied to join us since then. As of today I have 4 amazing volunteers on the Pantry team from the hub and we have more applications that we are processing.

It has been invaluable having extra support at the pantry so that we can continue to help our community especially at this difficult time.

As we always need volunteers to run the Pantry, the Fareshare Community Volunteering hub is now one of our reliable source of volunteers!”

Temitope Okudiya, Manager at Peckham Pantry (London)

“The volunteers that have come through the Community Hub have helped with a variety of roles including:

  • Taking phone calls
  • Cooking meals
  • Packing the dry food bags
  • Driving to pick up dry food bags or deliver the meals
  • Cleaning and maintaining the building

The range of volunteers that we’ve been connected with has been phenomenal.”

Sukhbir Singh, Feedmycity (Greater Manchester)
