Are you passionate about environmental sustainability, social justice, and food waste reduction? You could be a great cultural knit with Food Shift. Our team is currently accepting interns and volunteers, with both remote and (socially distanced) on-site opportunities available.

Food recovery volunteers help sort donated food on-site at our Alameda office, with social distancing and safety protocols.

Please note we ask for a minimum commitment of 10 hours a month.
