Summary

We're loooking for friendly, reliable Pantry Assistants to help our members feel welcome and supported.

Detailed description

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Our Pantry Assistants play a crucial role in ensuring our shoppers feel supported and welcome. They help us maintain the smooth running of the pantry: helping to stock shelves and create displays, give our members a personal service and help them with their shop.


We're looking for friendly, reliable Assistants who are great with people, happy to work in a retail environment and support our local community to reduce food waste and food poverty.


Requirements;

  • Friendly and reliable
  • Happy working in a retail environment (retail experience is not a necessity but is always helpful)
  • Able to commit to regular shifts where possible
  • A good team player


Our pantry shifts are usually:

Friday: 12pm - 5pm

Saturday: 11.30am to 4.30pm


Volunteers normally do one of these shifts a week where possible.


We are also open on Thursday evenings between approx 8pm and 10pm for the set-up.


Getting there

We're in the Scout Hut behind the Church on the corner of Nightingale Road and Grove Road, Hitchin. There is a car park and regular buses along Nightingale Road.

○ Choice - at Your Local Pantry, members always choose what they
want, as they would in any shop.

members to start building the better future they seek.

Everybody should have access to good food. Everybody values community.

member-led neighbourhood hub, often serving as a springboard to other
community initiatives, opportunities and ideas. As we all strive for a brighter
future, Pantries are an immediate big step in the right direction, loosening
poverty’s grip and creating the breathing space for communities to pursue
ambitious goals
