FareShare Mentor

  • VO74174


Description

We redistribute food which would end up in waste, to non-profit organisations in Tayside and Fife. These groups then provide meals for people who are experiencing food poverty, social isolation or other hardships.

We need Mentors who can give a few hours to help other volunteers with support needs. This is a vital part of providing this valuable service to thousands of individuals in need. Working as part of a team, the van crew load and unload crated food to local community food members.

If you have patience, good people skills and the desire to support others with minor needs to achieve the above tasks then get involved and help others to get involved socially.
