Description

Food Finders is in need of volunteers to pick up and From Home/Anywhere* and wholesome food to charities across Southern California. Volunteers will be claiming food rescues in their general area; using our free app; and  receiving 1-2 volunteer hours per route.

What's Needed To Complete

The car driver MUST have a valid driver's license and proof of insurance.

Whose Help Is Required

Some adult help may be required as an automobile driver is required.  All drivers must have a valid driver's license and car insurance.  

Special Requirements

This volunteer experience is great for the whole family or high school students and up (with a valid driver's license looking to make an impact on their community).

How It Makes A Difference

Food rescue is the heart of our organization. It's the original mission of Food Finders and you will be helping us fulfill that mission by taking surplus food and placing it in the hands of people who need it most. Without our food rescue volunteers our food rescue model wouldn't be possible!
