Getting involved

We're confident that the Meals & More programme offers opportunities for all sorts of companies and people to support this important work.  You can be involved as much or as little as you like!

As all roles work closely with children, volunteers' suitability will be assessed.  DBS checks are not mandatory but are likely to be required, and you will need to sign some necessary documentation.  Some clubs supporting very vulnerable children may not ask for volunteers. 

Helping out at a Meals & More club is an incredibly rewarding experience; however, we understand that working with children may not be for everyone.  There are still lots of ways to support, for example by participating in fundraising events.

As a supplier

Every supplier has something different to offer.  We welcome any contribution, big or small - it all makes a positive difference.  Suppliers may be involved as much or as little as they like with clubs that they support or that are in an area local to them.

From providing volunteers, developing activities for the clubs or simply focusing on making a donation, we welcome your commitment.  We would be grateful for extra food donations, including hampers for festive holidays, and ideas around skill sessions or workshops are a great way to bring your company's knowledge to the programme.

If you are a smaller supplier, any donations to clubs is much appreciated.  Cleaning materials, non-food items, arts and crafts materials, kitchen equipment and toys are all hugely important over and above commercial contributions. 

As a volunteer

Many of the clubs thoroughly welcome every bit of support, and there are lots of exciting opportunities to participate.  Whether as a supplier, a Brakes colleague or simply someone who is interested, you can speak to a club local to you to offer your support as a volunteer. 

Some clubs that cater for very vulnerable children may not ask for volunteers; however, there will still be ways that you can give valuable help.

We would strongly recommend checking our existing locations for details of Meals & More activity near to your home or workplace.  Contact Pem Hulusi, Programme Manager, for more information at

“We pledge to match the right supporter with the right delivery partner. We all share the same goal - helping children out of poverty, improving life for them and their families and, in turn, the local community.”
