Cabbage Crew

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. We were able to obtain a truckload of fresh cabbage that is going to be distributed to food banks, meal programs, and other programs that will, in turn, distribute it to those in need. The truck will arrive in Burien on Friday. We need assistance on Friday (7/31) unloading and sorting the cabbage and volunteers on Saturday (8/1), Monday (8/2), and/or Tuesday (8/3) that will pick up a car load of cabbage and deliver it to one of the organizations that has claimed it. We will be scheduling these pick ups at staggered times so that we are easily able to distance ourselves. All volunteers will be required to wear a mask. We are looking for volunteers that are able to do at least one trip on one day, or you are welcome to sign up for more than one delivery trip. 

Why volunteer?

  • You will be helping reduce food waste and providing food for those that need it
  • This volunteer program is designed to fit around your schedule - you choose the runs you want to make and when
  • FoodCircle is taking a community action approach to solve the wood waste issues within the area
  • One in seven Americans is food insecure. Despite such a large number of people not having enough to eat, each year, the United States throws away 40% of its food supply.
  • Over 67 billion pounds of our food waste ends up in landfill and damages our environment with harmful methane gases.
  • FoodCircle Foundation is creating a better world through food. Our mission is to bring people together around food, creating connection, harmony and healing.
