Our Foodsharing volunteers help prevent food from going in the bin and redistribute it for free to the student body through our community fridge. Funded by Climate Challenge Scotland, our community fridge and foodsharing hub aims to fight climate change and carbon emissions caused by food waste, while providing lots of free food to everyone in the community.
Becoming a foodsharing volunteer is simple: Contact us and we'll help match you with a pickup time and venue that works for your schedule. All you have to do is pick up food from the venue and bring it to the hub. For further away pickups, we have an e-bike and trailer.
