Volunteer with One Meal

We would love to welcome you to our volunteer network. Volunteering is fun and rewarding. Our volunteers happen to be a fantastic group of people too!

One Meal is 100% volunteer run and we literally could not do what we do without the generous hours that our wonderful teams of volunteers donate. Whether you have a few hours every week, once a fortnight or once a month – you can directly contribute to helping people via One Meal – cooking, serving food, collecting donated goods, packing hampers or providing friendly, positive engagement with our guests through genuine connection and non-judgemental conversation during our weekly meal services.  

We’re keen to have you on our team! There are just a couple of hoops to jump through first. All One Meal volunteers 18 years and over, require a Working With Children Check (WWCC). This is free of charge for volunteers online just click here, or from a Service NSW office.

Your WWCC may take a week or two to process, and we will need it from you before you can start, but in the meanwhile you can get your contact details, availability and interests into our Better Impact Volunteer platform so you’re ready to go just as soon as WWCC arrives. And that’s the external checks done.

There are also some documents on our Volunteer platform that you need to read and accept by ticking a box –  these relate to food safety requirements, our Code of Conduct, Privacy Policy and so on. 

Still interested? … Great! 


Registering now also means we can keep in touch with news and opportunities as they come up.

If you have any questions, send us a message with what location you are interested in volunteering with and we will get the relevant Area Coordinator to get in touch with you.

Volunteers are the cornerstone of One Meal and we are always on always on the look out for new helpers.
