Activity

Every Tuesday- and Wednesday afternoon food is prepared to be packed. 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. 

Target group & impact

Each week the food bank provides food packages for some 2.500 homes in the Haaglanden region for people living below the poverty line. To be entitled to a food package we evaluate eligibility every three months. In participating in this activity you are helping the poorest in society.

Because of limited resources the food bank primarily relies on volunteers.

Location

The location is difficult to reach by public transport. Having your own mode of transport would be ideal.
