Fighting food waste and hunger
In this program, you will actively contribute to fight food waste and hunger in a structured system that feeds over
3000 people every day. You will help the local teams
collecting, organizing and distributing the food excess from restaurants and cafés to fight food waste in the city. Volunteers will support a center which recovers food, in
good conditions, from local restaurants, supermarkets and cafés and re-distribute it among families, elderly and homeless people in need. These are people who need the food support to feed them and their families.
Volunteers can be working across the centers in Porto and their tasks will include collecting the food from local providers, assisting with packaging it, cleaning used containers, assisting with sorting and storage of any food left for the next day, distributing it to the families and clean up at the end of the shift.
