High­lights

Volunteer to have a meaningful social impact that really matters
Discover Lisbon and its beautiful nature including the beach or the rather mountainous regions
Improve the lives of thousands in need by providing them with food
Get the chance to partake in Portuguese language lessons and share daily life with locals
Contribute actively to fight the food waste in Portugal
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:
Leeftijd 16+
Alleenstaanden
Koppels
Families
Groepen
50+
Rolstoelgebruikers

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 that 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 2000 kg 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.

Dagelijkse activiteiten

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 the placement to join the local staff and begin to work on your project (if morning shift)

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

Wat is er NIET inbegrepen?
Visum, vluchten, reisverzekering en vaccinaties zijn NIET inbegrepen in de programmakosten.
Vlucht tickets
De dichtste luchthaven is Lisbon Portela Airport (LIS) in Lisbon. We assisteren u met het vinden van goedkope vluchten naar Portugal.
Reisverzekering
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor Portugal biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Vaccinaties
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Portugal dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Portugal.
