Food Collection Volunteer

Collecting food donations for our busy hostel in Taunton, Lindley House.

Job description:

Would you like to make a difference to people who are struggling with homelessness or rough sleeping? 

Arc houses, supports and enables homeless people to maximise their potential. Working in Taunton, West Somerset and Sedgemoor, we strive for all homeless people to have a safe and supportive environment, where people can be inspired and empowered by their own strengths. 

Can you: 

  • Drive your own vehicle 

  • Spare one hour per week 

  • Lift crates of groceries 

We are looking for someone to collect food donations from Greggs and Tesco and deliver them to our hostel in Taunton, as follows:

Greggs (Orchard shopping centre, Taunton): Wednesday, Friday or Saturday at 5.30pm
Tesco (Wellington Road), Saturday at 8.30pm

You would be responsible for: 

  • Collecting food on a weekly basis 

  • Delivering it to Lindley House 

  • Ocassionally returning empty crates to the donor 

We need to feed 40 people three meals a day, and without these food donations we would struggle, so if you don’t have a lot of time to spare but really want to help, we’d love to hear from you. 

Expenses reimbursed. 

Everyone is welcome
