Are you passionate about food poverty? Do you have fundraising skills and experience? Then this could be the role for you.

Worthing Food Foundation is looking for two volunteers who have experience of working with charities specifically in writing grant applications, fundraising and developing corporate partnerships. Currently we have a small team of enthusiastic fundraisers who would benefit from the input of experienced fundraisers.

Worthing Food Bank is a non-referral food operation. Our aim is to create a (food) safe and secure place and we believe our approach removes a lot of the stigma that surrounds food bank use, maintaining dignity and allowing us to build relationships that can be used to steer people towards other help they may require.
