General help


Do you like to roll up your sleeves? Then this is the right activity for you! At this activity, you help to pack food packages for the food bank. Due to an increase in people who make use of the food bank, more food packages need to be packed and that is why they can use your help! The packages are handed out to individuals and families in and around Amsterdam that are living below the poverty line. It is teamwork; volunteers together sort out the food and put all the products together in crates. The warehouse is not heated, so it is convenient to wear warm and comfortable clothing, that may turn a bit dirty. Looking forward to work together with other volunteers? Please sign up! If Thursday doesn't work for you, you can also sign up on Monday and Wednesday.

Target group & impact

The aim of the food bank in Amsterdam is to provide healthy and varied food to people in need. In this way, they create a caring community and stop food waste. The Food Bank Amsterdam provides food packages to around 1,200 Amsterdam households every week. In addition, the warehouse of Food Bank Amsterdam is also the Regional Distribution Center of North-Holland. This means that they are also responsible for receiving and distributing the food for the province. Approximately 4,000 households in North-Holland receive a food package per week.
