About FoodCycle LA
NA, Los Angeles, CA 90068, US
We connect excess food to people in need .FoodCycle is building an infrastructure to reduce waste and intelligently route surplus food-whether it’s to people’s plates or composting. Through our efforts, we’re changing individual behaviors, and ultimately, we'll change the culture around food waste.
FoodCycle is seeking passionate and dedicated volunteers to help further our mission in fighting hunger and ending food waste. We need volunteers on an ongoing basis to recover food from various restaurants, grocery stores, and food markets around Los Angeles. In addition to Food Recovery Drivers, we are looking for assistance building up our social media presence across all platforms.
