Foodbank Warehouse Volunteer - Glendenning NSW - # 179664

Foodbank Nsw Limited

Foodbank NSW & ACT relies on individual volunteers to help in our distribution centre on a regular basis. Warehouse volunteers work within a diverse team of staff and volunteers to help us distribute food to charities and schools throughout NSW & ACT. Warehouse volunteers generally help on weekdays, and perform a range of essential tasks in the distribution centre.

Key responsibilities:

  • Helping to maintain a clean, safe, and inclusive work environment.

  • Sorting, labelling, and packaging mixed food, grocery items, and fresh produce.

  • Packing charity orders.

  • Packing emergency food packs.

  • Assist in stocking shelves.

  • Other warehousing tasks as required.

No specific experience is required; however, our volunteers do need to:

  • Be at least 15 years of age.

  • Be able to follow verbal and written instructions in English.

  • Be able to perform physical work in the warehouse, including lifting.

  • Wear fully enclosed footwear, comfortable clothing, and bring a jumper/jacket and hat for working in cold environments.

This role is in a fully-functioning warehouse, and safety is our highest priority. All volunteers undergo full WH&S site induction and task training on commencement.

Warehouse volunteers commit to volunteering for set shifts on their agreed day(s) to facilitate working in teams and meeting freight timeframes. One-off exceptions may be considered where they fit with Foodbank’s operational needs.

Volunteering takes place in a COVID safe environment.

Benefits: Volunteers from all backgrounds are welcome. Volunteering in our distribution centre can help develop work-relevant skills, provide the opportunity for social connections, and help maintain physical activity. Warehouse volunteers gain satisfaction knowing they make an important contribution to our fight against hunger.
