Description

Help us get great surplus food from Borough Market to local charities by volunteering to do bike deliveries on Wednesdays and/or Saturdays from 5:30-6:30 pm.

Since 2014, Plan Zheroes has run a weekly surplus food collection at Borough Market. Starting just before 5pm when the market closes, our team of 3-4 volunteers visit traders and gather amazing surplus fruit & veg, bread and other products. The food is brought to Plan Zheroes’ table where local charities then come to collect it. Some of the food is delivered to 1-2 Southwark based charities that cannot collect it via our free #BoroughDelivers bike service.

You can either drive our electric assist cargo delivery bike or use one of our food delivery boxes to do smaller deliveries using your own bike.

This role requires someone in good physical shape for driving the bike and unloading deliveries.

Experienced cyclists are preferred, although the cargo bike is easy to drive and we can provide you with training. You will be covered under Plan Zheroes insurance.

We have a rota of drivers and are seeking someone to volunteer 1-2 times per month.

Travel expenses to/from the market are reimbursed against receipts, dependent on budget available.

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence
  • Teamwork
  • Planning/Organising

Training will be provided by the organisation for this position:

We can provide cycle training to help you get comfortable with the e-cargo delviery bike.
