We have volunteers from every walk of life who help with every aspect of Second Helpings – from collection of food donations to cooking tasty meals; from running our food boutique to clearing tables; from washing up and mopping floors to updating our website. Every volunteer, no matter how much time they can give or how often they can come along, makes the project come together.
We are always excited to bring new volunteers on board. Have a read of some of some of our volunteers’ comments below, then get in touch. Or come along on a Saturday to join us for lunch and to find out more!
