We like the way FareShare do their thing. They’re not afraid to tackle serious issues and have a laugh at the same time. Just check out their new national advertising campaign if you need evidence of their wicked sense of humour. Designed to attract individuals with an interest in lending a helping hand, donating their time to a good cause, and making a difference, it's undeniably funny. All in all, it's an excellent way to kick off their national volunteer recruitment campaign.
Whatever skills you bring to the table, FareShare will know how to put them to good use. They’re no amateurs. Imagine a large selection of kitchen knives. You’re one of them. Sharp, efficient, balanced, and honed to perfection – ready to cut, slice, and dice. Consider this - most people wouldn't know a boning knife from a Nakiri knife. FareShare does. FareShare are trained professionals who know how to get the most from each of their knives. We mean volunteers. They don't mess around. They’re kitchen-ready and able to utilise your time in the most effective way possible.
Whether you’re a driver, a picker, a packer, a chatter, a walker, or just really down for helping FareShare deliver meals to those who most need them, there’s a place on the team for you. Students work alongside retirees and volunteers from all walks of life collaborate to ensure that FareShare’s food is collected, sorted, and delivered on time.
At FareShare’s website, you can click through a quick, 30-second questionnaire that, once complete, will provide you with information as to which volunteer positions are available in your area. It will also reveal which positions are best for you – considering the amount of time you can donate to FareShare, how long you can commit to them, and factors such as whether you have a driving licence.
The process is quick and easy, and you'll be making an enormous difference if you can donate just a few hours of your time a week. For further information and to sign up for FareShare’s volunteer programme, visit http://fareshare.org.uk/volunteer/. We’ll see you there.
