Summary of role
Food Train provides a low cost home delivery service of grocery shopping to elderly people who aren’t able to get out and shop for themselves. Our volunteer shoppers shop from orders that customers have written.
Effective checking of the order whilst shopping makes sure that our customers get what they want. Shoppers start at 9.30am in Morrisons, Stranraer and shop until the orders are finished – it usually takes 1.5 to 2 hours. Volunteer shoppers generally shop weekly or fortnightly.
Introduction to the task, ongoing support from area co-ordinator and other volunteers. Annual training day and other training as required.
Tuesday/Wednesday morning. Two hours per week or fortnight or occasionally.
