We are hoping to open the Cirencester Foodbank in late September but to do that we really need your help, as there is a lot of work to be done between now and then! Once we are open we will have two distribution sessions, on Monday afternoons and Thursday mornings when clients can come to Ashcroft Church (with a voucher) to receive 3 days emergency supply of food. There will also be some evening sessions where we restock the distribution centre and prepare food into boxes, currently due to be on a Monday evening.

What do we need?

Volunteers /skills:

 People with daytime availability to staff the distribution sessions and talk to those collecting food so as to signpost them to other sources of help/be a friendly face

 People to help sort food at the warehouse

 Someone who might take on the administration aspects, putting data onto the Trussell Trust on line system (very easy to use!)

 Someone who understands CMS who might help us set up and maintain a website according to the Trussell Trust template

 Someone who might link with our referrers (GPs, health visitors, community organisations, village agents etc)

 A link individual with each local church who is willing to champion the cause of the Foodbank and organise food collections by the church members
