Our Community Fridge has been well received and is currently running smoothly. But only because we have a small team of dedicated volunteers who help to keep the fridge, cupboard and surrounding area clean, stocked and working. We need more volunteers to join our group to allow each volunteer to do less, and to help cover each other when someone is ill or has other commitments.
The different volunteer roles are:
· Collecting orders - you will need a car for this but mileage can be claimed
· Rotating stock - rather than putting everything from one delivery into the fridge, we put a smaller amount out each day to allow more people to have access to it. The person doing this also gives the place a spot clean if needed. But the more people we have doing this, the less times each volunteer needs to come in.
· Deep cleaners - every few weeks we like to empty everything and give all the storage boxes and equipment a good clean. If you can’t visit on a regular basis, maybe this is a job you could do?
· Knowledge - do you have experience in running a community fridge or pantry and would like to share this with those running the project.
If you are interested in volunteering, either regularly or for a short period of time, then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
All volunteers will be offered an induction and the opportunity to complete a Level 1 Hygiene Certificate.
