Administrator Accounts Assistant Volunteer

The Food Centre is a community based not-for-profit, registered charity organisation that was originally founded to establish and operate a food centre for the community.

We provide affordable groceries, clothing and household goods and social interaction through our Grocery Shop, Mel’s Op Shop, and Arnolds Place Café. We are committed to assisting members of the public living on low incomes and/or experiencing financial difficulties.

Volunteering within The Food Centre is a great way to save money whilst meeting new people, forging new friendships and giving back to the community.

We require the assistance of a Volunteer Accounts Administrator for 15 hrs per week to assist our Admin team.
