Calling local Food Rescuers to take action on Food Waste
The Best Before Project, with support of the Hornbeam Centre, has an exciting new opportunity for volunteers to gain an AQA accreditation in Designing, Planning & Delivering a Social Action Project. Taking part in this programme gives participants evidence of developing and improving important work and community skills.
Participants will work in a team and be supported to put on an event or multiple pop-up ‘pay what you feel’ stalls in the borough. The aim is to raise awareness among local people and independent food retailers and that it is not illegal to sell food that is passed its best before date.
Volunteers will practically help reduce preventable food waste and therefore save natural resources and enable people and small community organisations to save money.
There are many other ways to be part of Food Rescuing activities in the borough and we are keen to hear from organisations that can use or distribute food, or groups that would like to run their own ‘pay-what-you-feel’ stall.
See the volunteer role descriptions below for more details about the project and specific opportunities.
