Summary

We need volunteers to help run our busy and thriving Food Hub. It is open on Tuesdays 11- 1 pm and Thursdays 11-1pm and 5-7pm.

Detailed description

This is a very rewarding role. We meet and greet our customers, offer them hot drinks, and help them with the food items they need from the shelves and freezers. You don’t need any special skills for this, just a smiling, friendly face & an open mind


It is a great opportunity to meet fantastic & varied new people. We work in pairs, so you would never be on your own, and the person you are volunteering with will show you the ropes, a lot of our volunteers have been with us for over 18 months so they know their stuff!


You don’t need to be available every week. We have a rota, and various shifts, & you will be asked which days and hours you would like to help. It could be once a week or once a month - any help would be very much appreciated!

About Middle of the Hill Community Group

We are a busy, thriving Food Hub, based in the Community Room at Nouncells Cross , Stroud. We are all about reducing food waste and tackling hunger. We have gone from strength to strength, and now have donations of food from Waitrose, Tescos and Greggs, as well as local growers & suppliers such as Green Gourmet, Common Soil Community Farm, Stroud Farmers Market and others, & we access food & sundries surplus in the supply chain via Fareshare. We are also generously suppled with frozen meals from The Long Table.

We are open on Tuesday from 11-1pm and Thursdays 11-1pm and 5-7 pm. We greet our customers, & help them with whatever they need from our fridge, freezers and shelves, we also have an advice board should customers need access to further support. We are open access & we don't ask questions, food is free to those in need though donations are encouraged, we have costs, some food we buy in & every little helps to keep us stocked & cover expenses.

We also have a free self serve hot & cold drinks stand, again small donations are welcome. We will be employing a Community Cook soon & becoming a Community Cafe for two lunchtimes a week initially in the near future, so there's always lots going on.

It’s a fun and rewarding volunteer opportunity. We urgently need new volunteers to join us in this exciting & rewarding venture!
