Ongoing Food Recovery Program Volunteer Needs
We’ve got an amazing Food Recovery Program that collects surplus edible food from restaurants and delivers the food to hunger relief agencies. Cut down on carbon emissions, keep food out of the landfill, and feed community members experiencing food insecurity. Volunteers are always needed to keep this program running smoothly. Sign up today here!
Be a Zero Hero at Toward Zero Waste Community Events
Sustainable Connections Toward Zero Waste Program specializes in helping support our community in waste reduction and contamination education. We accomplish this by using volunteers to help at community events. Volunteers will assist the general public in properly disposing of waste at the waste stations. Each waste station will include landfill, recycling, and compost. Training provided! Most events include a free pass into the event, lunch, and event t-shirt. Sign up here!
