Current opportunities

At Community Food Initiatives North East we are currently looking for volunteers who can take on some key roles within our charity, focusing on developing our current structures to meet the changing needs of our disadvantaged and vulnerable beneficiaries. This includes the opportunity to join our great volunteer team as a Fundraising Committee Member. Fundraising is key to our work; we aim to continually innovate and expand our offering to ensure our disadvantaged communities are never left behind. We would like someone to assist on our fundraising committee to identify new ideas and opportunities to maximise local fundraising efforts, help to plan and coordinate group fundraising activities, promote fundraising events and initiatives in the local community and will commit to our vision of a UK without food insecurity and poverty. A fantastic opportunity to volunteer at an award winning charity and social enterprise. All help makes a real difference and is greatly appreciated. For more information and to discuss further please contact Kevin Mathew, FareShare Sustainability Development on email KMathew@cfine.org

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
