Join our Veg Packing Team

Wednesdays 10.30am and 2pm

Every week we sort the deliveries of fresh produce from our farmers at our base at Grow Tottenham in Tottenham Hale. We work as a small team to sort & weigh the deliveries of fresh produce from our farmers and pack into our customer’s individual bags ready to be delivered to our collection points around Haringey.

This role is suitable for volunteers with a wide range of physical abilities – lifting & carrying sacks of potatoes an advantage but not essential and for those with additional learning needs. We require attention to detail and accuracy with weighing produce and ensuring all produce is packed in the bags as required. We work outdoors but under cover and you’ll be on your feet so dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. 

We are a team of about 10 people each week. We’re friendly, supportive, have a good chat and enjoy the company with music & refreshments.  

It’s a great way of learning about different varieties of vegetables, what's in season throughout the year and sharing recipes with each other. At the end of the pack we share any surplus veg among the volunteers.  You can also earn Timecredits which can be spent in a number of establishments.
