Volunteer Drivers needed in Barnsley

We have an exciting volunteering opportunity available at our Barnsley warehouse. We’re looking for some volunteer van drivers to join the team! You can read the description below.

FareShare Yorkshire works in partnership with the UK’s largest food charity, FareShare. We are part of a network of regional centres located across the UK, of which we operate three (Barnsley, Leeds and our Yorkshire Storage HUB).

We are a community of independent franchised charities, all fighting for the same issues: hunger, food insecurity issues and food waste. Over 270,000 tonnes of perfectly edible surplus food is thrown away each year. We want to see that food put to good use.

FareShare Yorkshire was formed in 1998 to help tackle the food poverty issues across the county by redistributing surplus food across the region. FareShare Yorkshire source and redistribute quality, in date surplus food which would otherwise have to go to waste. We turn an environmental problem into a social solution.

We are in need of volunteer drivers, based at our Barnsley branch. Our van drivers are vital to the work we do, making sure our surplus food gets delivered to community food members across Yorkshire.

You must be over 18 to do this role, have a full clean driving licence and be confident in driving a 3.5 tonne van.

That’s enough for nearly 650,000,000 meals
