Volunteering

Volunteering is a rewarding experience that allows you to meet new people, learn new skills and  give back to the community.

We're looking for enthusiastic, friendly volunteers to help out in our canteens.

You'll work as part of a team and use all of your creativity to cook up a delicious feast from surplus food.

You can find more details below, or you can contact our dedicated Volunteer Co-ordinator

What our volunteers say

When we surveyed our volunteers, they told us how much they enjoyed their time in our Canteens. 85% of all those who replied, rated the experience as 'Excellent' while 100% told us they would recommend volunteering with Be Enriched to others

When we asked "What was the best part of spending time at the canteen?", our volunteers told us:

"The creativity of having to come up with a menu, cooking as part of a team, and seeing all the happy faces from the guest who enjoyed the food."

"Everything to be honest. Such a great experience, and will be doing again!"
 
"Seeing the joy on the faces of the people we served."

 

"It clearly made a huge difference to the guests to have a hot meal, company and conversation."

Find out more in this video from our CEO and Founder:

What was it like being a volunteer in 2022?

In 2022, 600 volunteers helped us with our efforts #Enriching Communities.

We are grateful for everyone who spends time with us.

To mark International Volunteers Day last year, we made this video. We think it's a great insight into what it's like in our Community Canteens, all the dishes that are served up, and the many smiles that come with them.
 

We are always looking for more volunteers, and hope you feel inspired to sign up. You'll meet new people, learn extra skills and make a difference to the lives of many.
