As a Surplus Food Collection volunteer you’ll play a vital part in making our community meals happen, by ensuring that your weekly FoodCycle session has a regular donation of food. Our Hartlepool collection slots are every Monday at 13.00pm.

What You'll Do: 

You’ll pick up surplus food donations from our partner supermarkets and local retailers, ensuring a prompt, reliable and friendly collection each week by car. You’ll then bring the surplus food back to your local Project venue and store it securely. You don’t need to have any previous experience – you just need to be passionate about food and reducing the amount of food that’s wasted in our society!

What We're Looking For: 
✓ Have bags of enthusiasm! ✓ Follow all FoodCycle policies and procedures – including the volunteer agreement. ✓ Follow all training you receive when registering with us. ✓ Support FoodCycle to fulfil its mission of nourishing communities with food and conversation. When driving: ✓ A full UK driving licence. ✓ A road-worthy vehicle with up-to-date road tax and MOT certificate. ✓ Fully comprehensive insurance. ✓ Read and agree to FoodCycle’s Volunteer Drivers Policy. When cycling: ✓ A road-worthy bicycle (with ability to hitch a trailer) and a helmet.
