Helping the hungry and homeless in Leeds


Love in a box is run entirely by volunteers and we are always looking for more volunteers to join our team.

To discuss any of these opportunities email or call Khalid on 07734391088

Here are the opportunities available:

Cook for the homeless

Are you able to dedicate a Saturday afternoon to cook 60 filling and nutritious meals? You will cook the food at your home and pack it into individual portion containers, another volunteer will then collect it from your house at 6pm and deliver it directly to the homeless in Leeds city centre. We will cover the cost of the food and food containers

Client foodbank voucher requests

Are you able to assess clients to see if they are eligible for a food voucher. Ideally you will speak English and another language (Arabic/Urdu).You must have a confidential nature and any experience of the benefits system will be desirable.

Work in the foodbank

Are you interested to work in the foodbank once a week. You will meet meeting clients, giving them a food parcel and helping to organise the stock. Ideally you will have a caring and supportive nature.
