In Lisbon, people who can’t afford sufficient daily meals are able to sign up for meal packages through local community organizations. These organizations work across a wide range of different neighborhoods to provide food to these people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to feed themselves.
You’ll join the efforts of a community movement aiming to eliminate food waste and end hunger by recovering food from local restaurants and supermarkets and re-distributing it among families, elderly and homeless in need. Volunteers generally help on the in-demand night shift from 6.30-10.00pm, packaging and serving dinner for up to 300 people every day.
This project is well suited to volunteers who like being active and hands-on, and want to help provide for vulnerable people. The Food Rescue project relies heavily on volunteers to deliver food on a wide scale across Lisbon, and currently serves around 20 different centers in-need throughout the city.Apply now
