Current opportunities

CFINE - Community Food Initiative North East improves health and well-being and the environment, tackles poverty and builds resilience through a range of support and services for and with disadvantaged, vulnerable, low-income individuals, families and communities across Aberdeen and North East Scotland. CFINE are recruiting volunteer drivers and electric cargo bike riders to help distribute emergency food provisions to vulnerable people. If you have your own vehicle or are a confident enough cyclist to handle an electric cargo bike, and are interested in volunteering to fight food poverty in the North East we would be delighted to hear from you – all help makes a real difference and is greatly appreciated. Please contact Louise Farmer at email LFarmer@cfine.org

Could you see yourself driving a Tuk Tuk around the streets of Aberdeen? Would you like to help CFINE deliver an exciting new project? Then this could be just the opportunity for you! CFINE are looking for volunteers to get involved in our latest initiative. ‘Tuk In’ is a mobile community café that will be run out of the back of an electric Tuk Tuk, using fresh in date food that would have otherwise been destined for landfill, it will visit various community hubs around the city. ‘Tuk In’ will combat food poverty and food waste, and it will also make services available through CFINE accessible to customers. We need Drivers, Cooks, and Servers for this exciting project and all help is greatly appreciated. If you are interested, email Sean on smcveigh@cfine.org or call on 01224596156
