Make a life-changing difference

Volunteers are key to everything we do, and have helped change thousands of participants’ lives.  Please help us make a life-changing difference to people in food poverty.

Sue, Sheffield Cooking Mentor

Volunteer as a Bags of Taste cooking mentor

At Bags of Taste, each year we deliver our Mentored Home Cooking Programme to 2,500 people across the country and we’ve had amazing feedback. Delivered by WhatsApp or phone, our interactive courses are flexible and fun.

Volunteering as a mentor on our programme, you’ll inspire and help others, which is hugely rewarding.

You can help wherever you are in the country.  You’ll need to commit between two to three hours over two weeks to support someone through a course, and you can commit for just one course at a time.

We’ll provide you with all the training and support you need!

Join our friendly, dedicated team of volunteers

Without our wonderful volunteers we wouldn’t be able to continue to make such a difference to people living in food poverty.

With significant increases in food bank usage and the economic uncertainty of the cost of living crisis and rising energy bills, our work is now needed more than ever. Today, we have 200 volunteers supporting us – but the more support we have, the more we can do together!
