Description

Do you believe in a world with zero food waste? Do you want to help fight food poverty? Then join the surplus food revolution and become a Zero Food Waste Hero with Plan Zheroes at London’s iconic Borough Market.

In cooperation with Borough Market, Plan Zheroes runs a volunteer led surplus food collection at the market every week. Since June 2014 we have saved 50 tonnes of food - the equivalent of 100,000 meals for people in need.

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.

We are looking for volunteers who are available from 4:45-6:15pm for our Saturday and/or Wednesday collections. We have a rota each month and you can expect to volunteer a couple of times a month whenever you can.

This role requires someone with energy and enthusiasm to navigate the crowded market, do a bit of lifting (although we also have a trolley) and to check, sort and record the food donated. It’s loads of fun and lasts just 1.5 hours.

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence
  • Teamwork
  • Planning/Organising
About you
