Organiser?

The Bulgarian Food Bank.

Why?

Every second Bulgarian lives at or below the poverty line. At the same time thousands of kilograms of food get wasted. Help prevent food waste and make it possible to feed a larger number of hungry people.

Where?

At the Bulgarian Food Bank warehouse in Sofia, Slatina-Bulgarplod Wholesale Market, 13 Prof. Tsvetan Lazarov Blvd, map.

Skills needed?

Deft hands and team play.

All volunteers must be in good health and should not have been in contact with anybody with a contagious disease in the past month (you sign a declaration on the premises, no medical documents required).

Necessary equipment?

  • Comfy and warm clothes. The average temperature in the warehouse is 15°C.
  • Closed toe flat shoes.
  • Provided on the premises are gloves, aprons and work vests.

Food?

The Bulgarian Food Bank will be happy to offer hot drinks and biscuits for a job well done.

Health risks?

The mission is not suitable for pregnant women and for elderly people who easily get tired by physical effort.

Age requirements?

Volunteers aged between 14 and 16 must always come with a parent/guardian/teacher. Volunteers aged between 16 and 18 must present a signed declaration of informed consent by a parent/guardian. Volunteers aged 65+ are among the most dear and invaluable helpers!

If the weather is bad?

Not a problem. Work is done indoors.

Stories

Once a mission you participate in ends, you can tell us how it went in a couple of sentences ("it was great" won't do).

It's simple: after the end we send you instructions - follow them. This way you earn points and rise in rank , others get inspired and we're all happy.

    Целта беше да се отделят подходящи зеленчуци от такива, които са за изхвърляне, за да бъдат раздадени на читалища, църкви и други институции, които готвят за бедни и бездомни хора.
