You HATE food waste? We hate food waste too! You HATE food poverty? Well guess what. We also hate food poverty! And we BOTH agree that it is ridiculous for food waste and food poverty to exist in the same community
It is official… you are destined to be a HUNGER HERO!
Whether you cook, bake, or serve a meal, volunteering with FoodBlessed is a transformative experience. We require volunteers all year long. We call our volunteers Hunger Heroes, because we believe that they are everyday heroes who put their time and energy into good use all the while making sure no good food goes to waste 🙂
In addition to providing those in need with a FREE hearty meal (SOCIAL impact); you will be cutting down the amount of food that goes to waste by diverting food that was meant to be wasted for reuse (ENVIRONMENTAL impact), and then there’s that EMOTIONAL impact to FoodBlessed that you won’t find anywhere else, it’s something researchers like to call a “helpers high” which is a distinct physical sensation associated with helping. Helping others is not only good for them and a good thing to do, it also makes us happier and healthier too.
“You feel good because you’re helping others, and the others feel good because they’re getting help.”
Moreover, more than simply doing a good deed. Volunteering with FoodBlessed helps you learn new skills, keep skills sharp, or use existing skills in new ways.
In other words, joining FoodBlessed is a win-win-win situation.
Once a HUNGER HERO, you can sign up to collect surplus food, to cook or bake, to prepare meals or serve them, to help with fundraising and community outreach.
