Volunteer in Lisbon to fight food waste and feed 3000 families who need support. Discover Portugal while traveling like a local and create a REAL positive social impact. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Alter 16+
Alleinreisend
Pärchen
Familien
Gruppen
50+
Rollstuhlfahrer

In this program, you will actively contribute to Fight Food Waste and Hunger in a structured system that feeds over 3000 people every day. You will help the local teams collecting, organizing and distributing the food excess from restaurants and cafés to fight food waste in the city.

Volunteers will support a network of centers which recover food, in good conditions, from local restaurants, supermarkets, and cafés and re-distribute it among families, elderly and homeless people in need.

Volunteers can be working across the centers in Lisbon and their tasks will include: 

- Collecting the food from local providers; 

- Assisting with packaging it; 

- Assisting with the sorting and storage of any food left for the next day; 

- Distributing it to the families; 

- Clean up at the end of the shift.


Impact

1 million tons of food are wasted every year in Portugal. This means that over 2000kgs of perfectly good food goes to waste every day, which is basically 30% of all the food we consume. This is a shocking figure as it would be enough to feed the 500 homeless of Lisbon, the 9000 institutionalized children around the country, or the 28 thousand isolated elders of the countryside.

We have partnered with several institutions which aim at breaking this cycle and recover food from restaurants, supermarkets, and cafes, and distribute it among families who need it.

Tagesablauf

A Typical day would be:

After the initial orientation, you will have an afternoon or evening shift at your placement and will work for approximately 3 to 5 hours per day. Please note that start times and daily workload depends on the project that you are participating in. A typical morning schedule is as follows:

08:00 | Breakfast begins at Impact house, available until 10 am

10:15 | Travel to placement to join local placement staff and begin work on your project (if morning shift)                                                                     

13:00 |  Lunch is served at the accommodation or at your accommodation or take-away if you want to go somewhere else                                

14:30 | Enjoy your free afternoon as you wish or to attend Portuguese languages lessons 

19:00 | Dinner at the volunteers' accommodation with the other volunteers. After dinner, you will have the remainder of the evening free to relax and use as you wish

Please note that the actual schedule can change according to the shifts volunteers participate in. There are a 10.30am, a 6 pm and an 8 pm shift.

Abholung vom Flughafen Lisbon Portela Airport

The ImpacTrip team will be at the airport waiting for you with a big sign and a smile on their face! :)

Unterkunft

Impact House has the capacity to accommodate up to 41 conscious travelers who want to visit Lisbon in a different way. With both dormitories and private rooms, any traveler can choose to have a more responsible stay in Portugal.

There are various common areas such as dining room, living room, fully-equipped kitchen, two balconies with sofas and hammocks and a big terrace to relax or participate in our super interesting events calendar. We have free Yoga classes three times a week!

Located in a typical Lisbon neighborhood, Estrela, Impact House is just 20 minutes away from the downtown. You can find local shops, traditional restaurants, the stunning Estrela garden, supermarkets, ATMs and most utilities you will need just around the corner. The Hostel is surrounded by several connecting options to the city center, such as the historical 28-Tram (20 minutes away from the center), buses (20 minutes away from the center), and the Alcântara train station that leads you to Lisbon or Cascais (25 walking distance from the hostel). The airport is just 8,2 km away.

But what is really unique about us is our sustainability concept.

We developed innovative projects based on circular economy and in partnership with local non-profit partners. These projects are integrated into the very basis of the way the hostel works. Some examples are the compensation of 100% of its CO2 emissions; the upcycling and wooden waste usage as furniture of the room; the social and sustainable shop; the ecologic and biodegradable cleaning projects; the art gallery for disabled and changemaker artists; the vertical garden; the buying in bulk policy or the almost closed food and waste cycles.

And you can also be part of it! Donate something, volunteer your time, learn new skills on our zero waste workshops, compensate your flight emissions, bike to transform plastic into new products among many other opportunities!
