Position title
Handle referrals for a local food bank

A food bank in Stansted is looking for volunteers to be responsible for handling referrals (for a week at a time on a rota basis). Your turn would only be once every eight weeks and you may have a quiet week with no calls at all, or possibly as busy as up to five referrals. How you manage the week can fit around your schedules.

When it is your turn, you receive calls, take referral details, make up each delivery from our store, buy a small amount of fresh food (using the food bank kitty) and deliver the bags to the collection point.  We have occasional meetings with each other and keep in touch by email if necessary should a query arise.

Ideally you would need to live in Stansted or nearby and have access to a car on the week that you are on duty.  Some simple simple record keeping skills are needed.
