Help your community stop food waste and fight hunger by bringing excess food to homeless shelters. You will be walking with trays of excess food, which would have been thrown out by the restaurant, to the nearest homeless shelter. Please note you must sign up for an account, and after you confirm your account via email, you must go back to our website www.rescuinglftovercuisine.org to sign up for the event!
Core Rescuer (2:30PM-5:30PM, 10 Hours per week):
A core rescuer commits to leading 10 food rescue events a week. They always lead the same events every week. Core Rescuers are required to do all of the events every week. If they miss one event, they must make up their event hour that week, or a future date, but the event must be made up. The core rescuer position is also a 4 month commitment. Throughout the four month commitment, we will supply you with an unlimited metro card for each month to complete your events. There is also a $500 stipend at the end of the program.
As a core rescuer, you will also be leading groups of volunteers during events, and actively engaging them. Core rescuers educate our volunteers on the issues of food waste and hunger, while leading them from the restaurant, to a nearby homeless shelter, where we drop off the food donations. Training is provided.
We'll work with your schedule.
