Food For All is an entirely volunteer-run organisation and therefore depends heavily on the help of lots of amazing volunteers to produce and distribute thousands of meals to the vulnerable every day. If you’re interested in becoming a part of our initiative, we want to hear from you!
Ways to get involved
There are several ways to get involved as a volunteer for us:
- Preparing & packing meals at our central London kitchen, near Holborn Viaduct
- Delivering meals in your car, on your bike or even riding one of our rickshaws
- Handing out meals at one of our food hubs around London
- Helping with admin tasks at home on your computer
At our kitchen we prepare and pack thousands of hot meals every day. Kitchen volunteers help us each day with food prep, packing and labeling individual meal boxes and cleaning.
Shift timings are as follows:
- 08.00-12.00 Monday-Saturday
- 13.00-17.00 Monday-Thursday only

Every day we deliver meals to other organisations, food banks and community groups who distribute them locally to those they support.
These deliveries require a car, van or rickshaw bike, as they are all bulk deliveries of meals packed into crates.
We also deliver meals to the homes of vulnerable individuals. Meals can be collected from our kitchen or from our Camden Hub in NW1 and delivered by bike or on foot.

Distribution Hubs & On the Street
As well as delivering meals to other organisations and to homes, we also hand meals out on the street every day.
We have several distribution hubs set up around London, as well as distributing meals to the homeless regularly around central London, by van or rickshaw. Helping out with these would involve serving meals out directly to those on the street, or bagging up meals to hand out for later.

Not everyone can be out on the ground preparing and distributing meals. We never want that to stop keen volunteers from getting involved, wherever they are.
We have a variety of areas you can offer support with, including fundraising, recruiting new volunteers, researching new service partners and general administrative tasks.
Commitment can be as little as 3 hours as a one-off, or if you can commit to a few hours of your time a week, then even better!
No prior experience necessary. All that’s required is a computer, internet and a little knowledge of how to use them.We’ll help you set up with any IT platforms we use to communicate and perform remote tasks.
