ORGANIZATION: SHARE MY MEALS

We are looking for volunteers to help recover healthy meals from commercial donor cafeterias and deliver to specified nearby non-profit organizations. Every meal saved stays out of the landfill, helping the environment, while also nourishing our community in need.

The volunteer role would involve:

  • Picking up packaged meals from our donor cafeteria, and
  • Delivering these meals to our non-profit community partner/s in the nearby area.

Each volunteer task will take approximately one hour including travel time between donor and recipient. Pick-up and delivery times will be between 1-3pm on Fridays. We require volunteers to drive their own car. We welcome regular participation but will work with your schedule.
