The Food Chain couldn’t exist without our team of amazing and committed volunteers.
We have over 150 volunteers who dedicate their time and skills in many different ways. The Food Chain is one of the biggest volunteer involving organisations in London and we are hugely grateful and proud of all our volunteers.
As a volunteer you will be a vital link in The Food Chain. We completely depend on a dedicated, diverse and flexible volunteer force to deliver our life changing services.
Current Volunteer Vacancies
We are open for applications for a number of roles, and will be running new volunteer trainings at the end of August. The descriptions for the different volunteering roles are below. Please make sure you meet the criteria before applying.
Please note that in line with the introduction of mandatory vaccinations for Social Care and NHS staff, we require proof of double vaccination in order to volunteer at The Food Chain.
Eating Together is the name of our communal lunchtime meal session where service users enjoy a hot lunch and some company every Wednesday and Saturday at our Kings Cross kitchen. Please click on the volunteer role descriptions below to read more about the roles.
We always need bucket shakers and cake bakers! Throughout the year volunteers support our fundraising efforts by baking cakes at community fairs, selling raffle tickets, and fundraising with our friends in the LGBTQ+ bars of Soho. Some of the big dates in our calendar are Pride (July) and World AIDS Day (December) but we have plenty going on in between. No fundraising experience is necessary – you’ll always be part of a team including staff members – but a level of confidence and a great big smile certainly come in handy!
