Food Rescue Volunteers

 

Welcome to Food Rescue Volunteers!

 

Do you want to...

 

Reduce food waste on campus?
Improve food accessibility?
Support other students through the cost-of-living crisis?
Help improve the overall sustainability at the University of Leicester?

 

As a society, we work together to collect food that the campus outlets can no longer sell because of their sell-by dates and deliver them to the community kitchens (in Percy Gee and Charles Wilson Buildings), for students to take for free.

 

We run as a low-commitment society, expecting each member to cover at least one shift (approx. 15 - 30 minutes), that lasts the length of time it takes you to collect, deliver and record the food... and the BONUS is... as a member you get first choice of the food in the fridge.

 

If you would like to get involved, please get in touch by email at su-foodrescue@leicester.ac.uk

 

Meet your committee:

President: Melissa Barwell (mb870@student.le.ac.uk)

Treasurer: Zihua Wang (zhw2@student.le.ac.uk)

Wellbeing and Inclusion Ambassador: Dimitris Chatzistefanou (dc426@student.le.ac.uk)

Publicity Secretary: Zilan Wang (zlw1@student.le.ac.uk)
