The Hornbeam and This is Rubbish are seeking passionate Food Rescuer Volunteers across Waltham Forest. They are working with anti food waste campaigning and redistribution organisation ‘Best Before‘ to raise awareness among local food retailers that it is not illegal to sell food that is passed its best before date. Volunteers will encourage and support retailers to sell food passed its Best Before date at a reduced price; showing we can reduce waste and also educating their customers. Shops will also be able to donate food which they don’t want to sell, to other projects such as food banks and the Peoples Kitchen.
We are looking for enthusiastic people to get involved – you could help run collections, engage shops, help with distribution, or run awareness-raising events? It’s really up to you.More about the roles here:
