Group Volunteering

Full until fall 2024. Bookings will start again in August.

Volunteering at The Compass is a great team-building opportunity for companies, community organisations, schools, and groups of friends who want to do good in the community and learn more about how food banks work. Volunteers help with activities such as sorting and organising food in the warehouse and re-packaging bulk items for distribution to clients. You will also have a tour of The Compass and learn about what we do, and who we help.

Group size: 6-12

Timing: Thursday afternoons from 1-4
