Volunteer opportunity description

A core rescuer commits to leading 10 food rescue events a week. They always lead the same events every week. Core Rescuers are required to do all of the events every week. If they miss one event, they must make up their event hour that week, or a a future date, but the event must be made up. The core rescuer position is also a 4 month commitment. Throughout the four month commitment, we will supply you with an unlimited metro card for each month to complete your events. There is also a $500 stipend at the end of the program. 
As a core rescuer, you will also be leading groups of volunteers during events, and actively engaging them. Core rescuers educate our volunteers on the issues of food waste and hunger, while leading them from the restaurant, to a nearby homeless shelter, where we drop off the food donations.


Core Rescuers must be at least 16 years, and have volunteered with us a least 2 times before. Training will be provided
