Additional Notes 

If you wish to volunteer with us in the kitchen, it is extremely important to take the greatest care of your own safety and the safety of others. Please only sign up to volunteer if you are healthy, have no underlying health conditions and are willing to adhere to all necessary health & safety measures at all times.

Please read the government guidance for food charities to get a better understanding of the measures we are doing our best to put in place to protect all of our volunteers and team. Personal Protection Equipment will be provided to all volunteers working in our kitchen and social distancing will be practiced as much as is physically possible.

All kitchen shifts are posted on SpareHand, which will allow us to carefully manage the number of volunteers coming to the kitchen for each shift. This will allow us to prevent overcrowding ever occurring in the kitchen and therefore keep all volunteers and kitchen staff as safe as possible.

To get involved, please complete our Volunteer Form so we can send you updates by email.  Please also sign up to SpareHand, so you can start viewing and selecting the kitchen shifts you wish to help us with each week.

And please also join our Telegram Group where we post updates via messenger and share lots of lovely pictures of the amazing work our volunteers are doing 🙂
