Food bank volunterringInformation for volunteers

How to get involved

We could not operate the Basics Bank without our dedicated team of volunteers. They carry out a range of services such as collecting food, sorting out food donations and clothing, making up food parcels and meeting and distributing food to clients.

Volunteers can work with us on a very flexible basis. Our main base is at Penton Place, Milland Road, and we have satellites at St Barnabas Church in Weeke and Hope Church Winchester, in the city centre. Our premises at Milland Road is open on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10am to 3pm. Our satellite at St Barnabas Church (food only) in Fromond Road, Weeke  is open on Thursday mornings from 10am to 1pm. Our second satellite (food only) is based at Hope Church Winchester, Middle Brook Street, and is open  on Monday mornings from 10am to 12:30pm

You can also volunteer in other areas, such as collecting and delivering donations, administration, or taking responsibility as a lead volunteer.
