Every Tuesday morning fruits and vegetables are sorted. Tomatoes, potatoes and onions for instance have to be sorted out. It is a well-oiled machine and a permanent team of volunteers will show you the ropes. You will be helping with sorting food and prepare it for packaging the next day. Are you that someone who is not afraid of hard work and would you like to help us out sometime? We advise sturdy shoes for this activity and clothes that you don’t mind to get a little dirty.
Fruits and vegetables are regularly disposed due to a minor issue with shape, size or colour . The Groente & Fruitbrigade saves these fruits and vegetables. Eventhough the shape might alter a bit they still taste the same. Such a waste to through these product away. The Groente & Fruitbrigade supplies fruits and vegetables to the Voedselbank in The Netherlands.
The location is difficult to reach by public transport (it's relatively close to the foodbank). Having your own mode of transport would be ideal.
