Costa East London Surplus Food Pilot - Volunteering opportunity

Costa East London Surplus Food Pilot - Volunteering opportunity

Community Food Enterprise (CFE) will be carrying out a two months pilot with the coffee shop chain Costa in all seven East London boroughs.

Boroughs includes:

• Newham
• Barking and Dagenham
• Havering
• Redbridge
• Hackney
• Waltham Forest
• Tower Hamlets.

One of the aims of the pilot is to ensure, any surplus food collected in each borough is distributed in the same area where the store is located.

The surplus will be collected after stores closes by CFE’s Drivers using their own cars and must be delivered to the beneficiary immediately after collection.

What Community Food Enterprise Require

We are looking for enthusiastic and reliable Volunteers with full United Kingdom driving license and are prepared to give up some time in the evenings to collect surplus food from Costa’s and deliver to Beneficiaries based in borough where Costa shop(s) are located.  We are also seeking Drivers Buddy to accompany drivers during collection.

CFE will cover fuel (£0.45/mile) and contribute £5 each towards a meal for drivers as well as Buddies
