General help


Every Tuesday- and Wednesday afternoon you can help with sorting fruits and vegetables. Tomatoes, potatoes and onions for instance have to be sorted out. The well-oiled team with the permanent volunteers will show you the ropes. You will help with sorting and preparing food for packaging. Are you not afraid to get dirty hands and would you like to help 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. In participating in this activity you are helping the poorest in society to put a well rounded meal on the table every day. Suppliers and individuals donate their surpluses of food that they cannot sell anymore. This way we can help reduce poverty together.

Because of limited resources the food bank primarily relies on volunteers. Do you want to help reduce food waste as volunteer in The Hague? Your help is appreciated!

PLEASE NOTE: subscriptions for this activity close on mondays 1 week prior to the activity. If you want to join this activity you will have to register in advance.
