The Scottish Pantry Network is a community-led organisation that supports collaboration and knowledge-sharing among local community groups that run food pantries in Scotland. The network promotes a model of redistributing surplus food to reduce food waste, while also providing affordable and healthy food to those in need.

The network encourages collaboration among its member pantries, providing support and training to help them operate more efficiently and effectively

The Scottish Pantry Network urgently requires a volunteer driver to support the redistribution of surplus food to pantries across the city.

We are looking for someone who can commit to at least 4 hours per week for the next 6 months.

Minimum age - 25

TSPN champions a creative model and strength-based approach to tackle food insecurity that offers a ‘shopping experience’ to individuals and their community.

Pantry members are not required to explain their personal circumstances, and memberships are open to everyone in the community. The Pantry model is based on a membership system where shoppers choose their own food items. This approach is designed to be inclusive and not to differentiate and helps Pantries to be regarded as a local food outlet as opposed to a place to go for food support.

The need for providing basic support including food is increasing dramatically, as has the risk of poor mental health, social isolation, debt, relationship pressures and unemployment.

TSPN members help to facilitate an effective way to provide food with dignity within local communities, helping make people’s budgets go further, and increasing community engagement and cohesion, while reducing large scale food waste.

Candidates must have expertise operating a medium-sized transit van and possess a standard driver's licence. A pleasant, outgoing, and charming individual who gets along well with others would be ideal for this position.
Moreover, you must be able to lift and load objects. You must be flexible and understand that managing surplus food can occasionally be unpredictable, thus daily routes and drop-off locations may change in order to successfully fulfil the function of Volunteer Driver.
