Would you recommend Food Runners CT?

by Marybeth p. (September 16, 2010)
This opportunity couldn't be easier! Food Runners does the legwork of finding organizations with excess food*, all you have to do is pick up the leftover food and drive it to a shelter or soup kitchen. Done. You will get instant gratification of: 1.) eliminating food waste, and 2.) helping feed hungry people! *P.S. You?ll soon be smitten with this brilliantly simple idea that you?ll want to recruit local schools, restaurants, corporate cafeterias, etc. Food Runners has marketing materials you can use to approach organizations and ask them to get involved.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
