Keep Austin Fed gathers wholesome and nutritious surplus food from various locations and distributes it to area charities that serve hungry people in need. Food items are picked up from donor and delivered directly to the charitable organizations that distribute the food. Keep Austin Fed's food rescue program is done completely by volunteers and they need your help to get good food in the hands of those who need it and keep it out of the landfill!
All food recovery volunteers must have their own transportation and insurance. Volunteer shifts are available 7 days per week from 8 AM to 5 PM. Average pick-up and drop-off times are usually about an hour long, but can be shorter or longer. Volunteers are contacted for pick up using a Group Me text message system. You must attend a 2 hour orientation and obtain a food handler's certification which takes no more than 2 hours to complete online.
Other volunteer opportunities are available for Keep Austin Fed including phone bank team member, web production, social media, graphics specialists, bloggers and much more.
