About the volunteering opportunity

Sorting of fruit and vegetables for food distribution to senior citizens, people with disabilities and many more

We save food and offer it in a public edition. Our target group are seniors and people with disabilities, but the rest of the food has to be collected by everyone.

In order to be able to offer our products, they must be sorted and arranged beforehand. This means that you have to look through fruit and vegetables to see what is still good and edible and everything else is disposed of. The good food is nicely draped so that everything looks appealing in our distribution.

Please note: The commitment takes place in Gernsheim. 

About 20 km away from Darmstadt.

Your Tasks

The task is the sorting of the food and the preparation of our food distribution. So tidying up and preparing everything properly.

Whats needed

You should be able to stand well during the time of assistance, wear comfortable footwear. You should be able to see well enough to distinguish edible goods from waste. A good mood is not a must, but would be a welcome souvenir. It would make sense to wear clothes that can also get a little dirty...whereby we can also offer an apron.

It would be good if you could carry or lift a box full of fruit and vegetables on a small distance...from a trolley to a table.

Knowledge of German, which makes a rough communication possible and which is not based only on finger pointing, would be great. Since you have to work quickly, it is good if you can communicate relatively easily. We often have older people as helpers who don't speak English, so it would be nice if everyone could communicate with each other halfway when we make arrangements.

German Skills

Please note: For this volunteering opportunity, you need German skills on the level „Basic German skills“.
