The Charity is 100% made up of volunteers. The soup kitchen could not function without the loyalty,dedication, support, time, effort, enthusiasm, fundraising efforts and goodwill of all its volunteers, who give over 7000 hours per annum. We presently have about 120 volunteers in total.

The Charity is run and managed by a small committee who act as trustees. We are always looking to welcome new volunteers to support Hope for Food and our work.

We currently have a dedicated bank of volunteers who are dedicated to helping the soup kitchen run smoothly. We are always looking for people to help cook and serve food for our soup kitchens that we run four evenings a week; Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday & Sunday. If you would like to help in other ways, we are always looking for support behind the scenes with administration, clothes sorting, organising events and linking up with local businesses.


For reasons of health and safety, insurance and child welfare, we cannot have volunteers at the soup kitchen who are under the age of 18, both to protect our volunteers and the vulnerable people we serve. We may have limited behind the scenes opportunities though such as helping sort the donations and stock rotation in our food store.
