Trustee - Glasgow South West Foodbank (Glasgow)

Opportunity image

Glasgow South West Foodbank has provided over 700,000 meals to people living in the South West of the city since 2013. From 2023 it has been based in its own warehouse in the Govan area, delivering its services from five distribution points in local churches and community venues.

We are part of the Trussell Trust network and are a Pathfinder Foodbank, exploring ways of delivering services more effectively to our clients to resolve the issues they face, and ultimately reduce their need to come to us. We are also heavily involved in work in the city aimed at tackling food insecurity through cash first approaches being developed by the new Glasgow Fair Food for All Partnership.

We are seeking four new trustees to become members of our board. Trustees ensure that the food bank acts in conformity with its purpose and with charity legislation, and that good governance, best practice policies and rigorous financial supervision are in place. They will be required to work collaboratively, with other trustees and with the staff and volunteers of the foodbank, and other external agencies.
