Hundreds of kindhearted people just like you volunteer their time, energy, skills and compassion at The Rev. Bill Crews Foundation. Volunteering with us is both rewarding and enjoyable. It enables you to give back to the community in addition to sharing time with likeminded people.

How our volunteers make a difference

Our volunteers enable us to provide the best possible service to our guests. In fact, we couldn’t do all that we do without them.

Volunteers at The Rev. Bill Crews Foundation prepare and serve meals in our famous Loaves & Fishes Free Restaurant, they serve meals from our food vans and they pack food parcels for struggling Sydneysiders.

In addition, our volunteers assist with administration and in our Social Health and Wellbeing clinic.
