Volunteering with FareShare Cymru is a chance to meet new friends, gain new skills and contribute to the community. 

It doesn’t matter if you are a lark or an owl, we have morning or afternoon shifts through the week and on Saturdays. Volunteering can be done online or in our Cardiff depot.

So, if you are over 18 and can give us a few hours a week, give us a shout on volunteer@fareshare.cymru or ring 029 20362111

Roles

Warehouse Assistant

In our Cardiff warehouse, you’re on the frontline of our operation. Your main role will be making up the orders for our community food members, getting the food on to pallets to be distributed to those who need it. You’ll also help us to keep the warehouse running smoothly by safely sorting the surplus food that comes in. This is a great opportunity to gain lots of warehouse experience and you may even be able to get some forklift training.

Delivery Driver

Without you, our food can’t be delivered to our community food members, to be made into meals for those who need them. If you are over 25 with a full clean driving licence, give us a shout. We provide driving training and support in our 3.5 tonne vans. If you are an experienced van driver, or want to gain driving experience, we want to hear from you.

Delivery Driver Assistant

Join our drivers out across Wales getting surplus food to hungry people. If you are happy to get physical in moving the food (It’s better than the gym!) and can help with navigation, this could be the role for you.

Operations & Admin

A mixed role helping us to make sure that all our food is logged correctly and that our delivery notes are ready to go out with the orders. If you have an eye for detail and want to gain some office skills and I.T. skills, this is the role for you.

Marketing & Communications Assistant

From time to time, we need support in keeping up our social media and marketing programmes. If you are looking for a career in marketing, this could be the role for you.

Development Team Assistant

An exciting opportunity helping the FareShare Cymru development team to grow the impact of our work across Wales. You could be doing research, helping build our volunteer team, getting more food members on board as well as supporting the team with admin. A great chance to build development skills, office skills and admin experience.

Community Group Link

You’ll be a link between our members and our operations team; carrying out kitchen checks, asking for feedback on the service, as well as informing them on nutrition and food safety. You could carry out this role mostly from your home and only a few times a month.

By volunteering with us you can:

  • Help get good surplus food to those in need 
  • Save hundreds of tonnes of food from being wasted needlessly. 
  • Gain employability skills and workplace experience. 
  • Build your confidence and make friends in a diverse and supportive group. 

Our volunteers say volunteering with us is worthwhile, keeps them fit and helps them feel part of the community. Read about some of volunteers here
