Volunteer vacancies
Canterbury Food Bank Van Drivers

We are looking for volunteers who can drive the CFB van and be part of the rota. Van driving days are generally Tuesday when the van goes to our distribution cafes, Wednesdays when the van picks up food donations and Fridays again for the distribution cafes. It wouldn’t necessarily be every week as we have a rota system.
The diesel van is a Citroen Relay 35 L3 H2 120 Enterprise Van. It is 6 metres long, 2.5 metres wide and 2.5 metres high. Previous experience of van driving, minibus driving or driving larger vehicles would be essential, however no special driving licence is required. The van driver would also be required to help pack the van with food parcels and unload at the distribution cafes, and also assist in emptying the donation bins.

Canterbury Food Bank - Van Driver Assistants

Canterbury Food Bank requires volunteers to assist the van driver with manoeuvres. The driver assistant would accompany the van driver and help when manoeuvring the van and reversing. No driving is required, this is visual assistance. The assistant would also be required to help pack and unpack the food parcels from the van and assist in emptying the donation bins.
