back to Ensuring food security for all

Volunteer with a community organisation

A direct opportunity to help ensure food security for all is to volunteer. Food relief organisations, community centres, distribution hubs, local farms, and education providers are just some of the places that take volunteers – with activities ranging from sorting, packing, serving and distributing donated food, helping with communications and social media to facilitating workshops. Many of these organisations often have limited resources – so volunteering is a great way to help. It also an opportunity to meet like-minded people and become involved in the fair food community.

Whatever your interests, the Illawarra has a range of volunteer opportunities for those willing to give their time to ensure food security for all.
