  • VO83795


Description

Once the full Covid related restrictions have been fully lifted and once our Fraserburgh store is fully operational. Roles Driver –delivering food boxes locally. Will need to have either someone from their household to accompany them or we will arrange two cars to prevent lone working. Need to able to lift and carry boxes of food. This will be in Fraserburgh and surrounding area initially then when the centre opens will just be to rural areas.

Fraserburgh is a new foodbank Centre and not yet open to the public. It has been used as a food distribution centre during C-19. We plan to open in August with the plan to prepack food parcels and issue these to recipients who attend to the foodbank and also to deliver these to rural areas. We are likely to open on a Mon, Wed, Fri for a couple of hours each session and can have a mx. Of three volunteers in at one time. It wold be ideal to have different ‘teams’ on for each session so would need a mix of people who are happy to do the chat and advice and those that are happy to pack through the back.

Minimum commitment would be 1 session per two weeks initially for those in the centre.
