Volunteers on Wheels ( VoW ) supports 35+ food banks and other humanitarian charities in N London and SW Herts with bulk collections / deliveries of food and other essential supplies .
Our food bank partners regularly describe our service as " the vital link " in the distribution process currently providing circa 1 million food parcels per annum to people struggling with food poverty and insecurity .
In addition our service currently substitutes for approximately 6500 individual car journeys and diverts approximately 400 tonnes of edible food from landfill per annum .
VoW is aiming to double this impact over the next few years and needs more volunteers to help achieve these objectives
VoW simply transfers food ( & other essential supplies ) in 2 transit vans for food banks , saving their limited resources . We also make weekly collections from Morrisons to distribute amongst our food bank partners and assist other humanitarian charities with the bulk transfer of clothing and other supplies particularly for refugees
