Calling all foodies to help London charities
FareShare London is seeking enthusiastic “food heroes” to volunteer in its Deptford warehouse as it expands to meet growing demand from local charities and community groups that feed hungry people.
Our London Centre saves in date, good food from going to waste and redistributes it to 224 charities and community groups across the Capital, who turn it into nutritious meals for Londoners in need of support. These include homeless hostels, lunch clubs for older people, domestic violence refuges and children’s breakfast clubs.
Join Jennie, Eleanor and our team of “food heroes” at our London Centre
The FareShare London warehouse in Deptford is seeking dozens of volunteers who can spare time during the week to help ensure that good, surplus food gets to the people who need it most.
Volunteers can sign up for morning, afternoon or early evening shifts, on a regular basis, and will be part of a team that helps to sort and deliver food, in-put food information on the computer system and even chat with the charities about their food needs for the coming week.
FareShare London will cover reasonable travel costs, within zones 1 – 4.
