School Food Matters relies on the work of volunteers. The contribution of volunteers is always valuable to our small charity.
Opportunities to help with food education projects can involve helping our gardeners, chefs and project officers in schools, and supporting our team at market days and events. These opportunities are a great way to explore our work and get hands-on experience of running sessions with children in schools.
Administrative tasks can include research or support with our project work. Previous volunteers have researched and written content for our website, set up office systems and helped to develop our social media strategy.
The work could be at schools around London or at our offices in SW London. We will pay your expenses up to a maximum of £11 for travel and £5 for food. Your expenses will be reimbursed when you complete an expenses form and produce receipts.
School Food Matters is only able to take on volunteers who are entitled to work in the UK and cannot assist with work permits or immigration issues. As part of the volunteer recruitment process, we ask you to complete an application form and provide references.
School Food Matters is committed to making new opportunities available to a wide range of volunteers to promote diversity and equality of opportunity. We want to attract people from all backgrounds as this helps us to create a more complete workplace to better reflect the diverse communities we serve.
