The Beyond Food project works with Trussell Trust’s Durham food bank to provide food parcels for disadvantaged families in the east of Durham. The food collection boxes are placed in colleges and the project leaders arrange for pickup and collection by the Trussell Trust’s Durham Foodbank.
There are usually opportunities to food bank sorting every week. Other activities are also regularly available.
Yes. You can attend foodbank sessions (usually 1-4hours) when you can, or join in with other campaigns etc.
The foodbank we work with is in Chester-le-Street, but there may be opportunities to volunteer around Durham too.
Chester-le-Street is easily reached by train in about 10 minutes. Any transport costs can be reimbursed by DU Student Volunteering and Outreach.
