Virtual Grocery Go Getters

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 9 people are interested

FoodCircle Foundation is recruiting volunteers for its new FoodRecovery Program that rescues food from becoming food waste and puts it into the hands of Seattle’s food insecure.
As we start our program and begin preparations for our app to be ready to go, we need to start doing outreach to local grocery stores, bakeries, and other food sources where we can rescue food from. While we have a giant list of these sources, we need to do a little internet sleuthing to find the proper contact at each organization. Our Virtual Grocery Go Getter volunteers will be given a chunk of the listings, we will send you the names and addresses of businesses, and you will send it back to us with the contact emails that you are able to find on the internet. It is that easy. This is a great opportunity to give back from your home and it is completely flexible time-wise. If you are interested in putting your Googling skills to good use, this is the volunteer role for you!

FoodPath Program

FoodPath provides free, one-on-one coaching on how to cook in meaningful, convenient, and affordable ways - without relying on recipes or fancy ingredients.

Reimagining Grocery
Transforming our relationship with food begins long before the kitchen. We’re on a mission to reimagine the conventional grocery store by exploring and developing a new grocery model with no branding and no single-use packaging. This bulk-food model will cut costs for the customer and producer, as well as support sustainable, healthy living.
