About the volunteering opportunity

On Mondays we save a lot of fruit and vegetables, of which we naturally want to give as much as possible to the people in need in Berlin and dispose of as little as possible. Therefore, we need your support!

From the manager to the househusband, a colorful team sorts an equally diverse selection of donated varieties of fruits and vegetables according to the principle of the five senses and valid food standards. You will first get a short introduction and then you can get straight to work sorting food together with many other volunteers.

Of course, there will be a lunch break where you will get a free lunch :)

Your Tasks

Together with many volunteers you will be responsible for sorting donated food (mainly fruits and vegetables) 

What's needed

For this volunteering opportunity, intermediate German skills are required.

You should be at least 18 years old , have a basic physical fitness, have an interest in dealing with food and have no reservations to come into contact with partly no longer edible goods. In addition, you should be able to proactively approach other employees and ask them for advice when you have already completed your task.

What to bring

From us you can get the following health and safety materials:

  • Medical mask: OP or FFP2 mask
  • Disinfectant
  • Disposable gloves
  • Safety shoes with steel toe caps
  • Plastic shirts or green board t-shirts to put on to protect your clothes.
Please bring clothes that may get dirty and have socks with you as you will be given work shoes.

Of course, we also provide a delicious lunch made from donated food for all volunteers!
