Virtual Grocery Go Getters

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. 

As we start our program and begin preparations for our app to be ready to go, we need to start doing outreach to local grocery stores, bakeries, and other food sources where we can rescue food from. While we have a giant list of these sources, we need to do a little internet sleuthing to find the proper contact at each organization. Our Virtual Grocery Go Getter volunteers will be given a chunk of the listings, we will send you the names and addresses of businesses, and you will send it back to us with the contact emails that you are able to find on the internet. It is that easy. This is a great opportunity to give back from your home and it is completely flexible time-wise. If you are interested in putting your Googling skills to good use, this is the volunteer role for you!

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.
