Description

A Hub is where the magic happens: we collect food from supermarkets, bring it to a venue and cook it into a three-course meal for our guests. Each Hub is run on the ground by a team of special lead volunteers called Hub Leaders. These people are passionate, committed people who want to make a positive change within their community.

FoodCycle Hubs have a team of 6-8 Hub Leaders who take on a specific area such as managing volunteers, promoting the Hub locally or running fundraising events. As Community Outreach and Engagement Hub Leader, you’ll be responsible for leading the hosting part of the session and conducting community outreach to insure we have enough guests and volunteers.

Skills you'll learn

• Community outreach: you'll be building networks with your local community, to spread the FoodCycle word and to engage them with your Hub.
• Hosting skills: you’ll lead on ‘front of house’ duties, coordinating hosting volunteers and making sure guests feel welcome.
• Leadership and delegation: we'll train you up to lead cooking sessions and induct new volunteers into the kitchen.
• Relationship building: you'll be building lasting relationships with your local community, guests and volunteers, insuring they come back each week.
• Social media: you'll utilise social media channels to promote your project and events.
• Fundraising: you and your team will be responsible for raising vital funds to support your project.
• Running effective meetings: you meet with your Hub Leader team once a month to discuss the running of your Hub.
