Sectors: food, farming & horticulture, sustainability

Closing date: Not specified, apply soon!

The Food Sharing Hub’s Storage and Distribution Hub is located at 22 Bread Street, and will be operational before the official opening of the Food Sharing Hub in January 2019.

The purpose of the Storage and Redistribution Hub is to act as a sorting space, where incoming food from our partner businesses can be weighed and organised into delivery boxes, to be delivered to our partner charities and schools.

We are seeking five volunteers who are available for a 3-4 hour time slot on a weekday (Monday to Friday) to organise the space and deliver the food to various locations in Edinburgh (all relatively central).

The role is:

  • To weigh and sort the food being delivered to the Storage and Distribution Hub, located in the Food Sharing Hub at 22 Bread Street.
  • To maintain the upkeep of the Storage and Distribution Hub, ensuring that Food Sharing Edinburgh is complying with its health and safety policies, safeguarding the quality of the food.
  • To deliver special delivery boxes to 1-3 charities, on a regular week day, as agreed by the Food Sharing Coordinator. You will have access to a bike with a bike trailer (including all safety gear).

You are the face of Food Sharing Edinburgh and all our agreements are founded on trust (no contracts involved!) so it is important that you follow these guidelines to maintain a friendly and trusting relationship with your charities!
