Sobre el programa

This program has the main purpose to actively contribute to Fight Food Waste and Hunger in a structured system that feeds over 3000 people every day. The volunteers will help the local teams collecting, organizing and distributing the food excess from restaurants and cafés to the families who really need it.

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

As a volunteer your daily 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.

This is a 100% volunteer based non-profit with two extremely important missions: Fighting Food Waste and Feed people. 

We would love to welcome volunteers from all over the world to join this fantastic project.

Porto is the second biggest city in Portugal and one of the most authentic cities to visit in the country. Stroll through its sinuous and picturesque streets and feel the pulse of the city, or take the tram to the mouth of the river Douro and get to know the excellent beaches and the outdoor cafés. The historic center of Porto was declared UNESCO World Heritage but is the hospitality and forceful character of the locals that will delight you.  Porto is a vibrant and young city with countless cafés, bars, and clubs to have a really good time at night, or relaxed rooftops to have a drink and enjoy the warm Portuguese climate.

Porto, the gate to the North of the country, is definitely worth the visit!

Honestly, I was surprised, when on the website it shows photos of so many dogs, animals, it turned out I was working at a cat sanctuary. It's not that I was disappointed by the cats, it was just a shock, and also, at points of the sanctuary I feel like I wasn't apart of it massively, there wasn't ...

Let me start with the positive point of this project: the hotel is really nice. Breakfast and Lunch are good and you have a good WiFi connection and access to pool and sauna. Sadly these are the only positive points, I have to say about this project. The rest is complete crap, to say it in a ...

There are some inconvenience because of the language barrier. The personnel there are all quite friendly. The accommodation was really good. But personally I don’t like the food there at the park. Although the work is really meaningful, there’s not much to do. For example I only had to help with ...
