About the Assignment
We are running this project in close collaboration with the Hammersmith & Fulham Foodbank. We collect donated food items from individual doorsteps and get them to the Foodbank to be shared with those most in need.

We have collected over 27 tonnes of food since March 2020! With more volunteers, we can cover more areas, and increase the contribution we make as a neighbourhood.

Responsibilities
As a DoorStep Collector, you will be collecting donations and packing them safely in the boot of our delivery vehicle. You should say a cheery thank you - from a distance - if you meet a donor, as they sometime watch out to say hello.

You also need to be reasonably fit - over the average one-hour collection spot, you will walk a few kilometres. So joining will be good for your fitness and stepcount too!

Hear from our Squad
'It's impressive how a little local venture can make such a difference.

I'm so happy to be part of this team. Every time during a collection, when you spot a donation on a doorstep, it's like the Easter bunny has arrived!'

Sigrid Goddard

'It's great to see the generosity of the neighbourhood, and be able to collect and see full car boots full of donations that make a material difference to families in need. I would recommend the project to anyone'
