Eco Shop Volunteers needed.
Eco Shops are pop-up shops in schools and community venues of high-quality supermarket food. Due to over-ordering or misprinted packaging, this food would usually end up in a landfill. We want to stop this perfectly good food from going to waste and instead have it distributed to Eco Shops.
Local communities can visit an Eco Shop, and for a donation of £2, you can choose 10 items that you want from a range of high-quality supermarket food. The food in Eco Shops changes each week. Mainly Eco Shops will have a wide range of food and drink in tins, jars, packets and bottles and a range of seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables.
In partnership with Middlesbrough Environmental City, Teesside University and Teesside University Students' Union plan to open an Eco Shop on campus, but we need dedicated and committed student volunteers. Volunteering a few hours a week would be a great opportunity to develop employability skills, make a difference in your local community, and reduce food waste.
Purchase a FREE ticket below to show interest in becoming an Eco Shop Volunteer. We will e-mail you by end of February with next steps.
Volunteers will receive Food Hygiene Training and be required to undertake training in the Middlesbrough Bus Station Eco Shop before we open our on-campus shop.
