Volunteering

Poor nutrition is the leading cause of disease and early death in Australia and New Zealand. Change lives by volunteering with us to advance whole food plant-based nutrition in healthcare.

Everyone should be able to access the powerful benefits of whole food plant-based nutrition. We need your help to make this a reality. As an independent charity, volunteers underpin much of our work and are an integral part of the Doctors For Nutrition team.

Contribute your skills, knowledge and interests as you highlight the vital role of nutrition in healthcare.

Why volunteer?

  • You’ll be working with a collaborative and supportive team of like minded individuals
  • You could learn new skills, or add to the ones you already have
  • You’ll have the opportunity to learn, network and find mentors in the nutrition field
  • You’ll have the opportunity to make a profound difference in peoples’ lives by advancing whole food plant-based nutrition in healthcare

Even if you are not formally contributing your time, raising awareness of whole food plant-based nutrition has a meaningful impact for our cause. You can contribute by:

  • sharing our website and social media pages
  • downloading our tools and encouraging your healthcare provider to explore them
  • joining our online and in-person events and learning more from our experts
  • inviting some friends over and cooking them a meal from our recipe collection

We greatly appreciate the integral part our volunteers play within our team.
