Deliver meals to those in need!

United Way Bay Area is partnering with Copia and World Central Kitchen to support their Restaurants for the People program in Oakland. We are looking for 10 volunteers per day to help deliver meals to various sites around Oakland and the East Bay between the hours of 9am - 3pm Monday, July 6 - Wednesday, July 8. Feel free to sign-up for 1 shift, or all shifts. Volunteers will use the app to: (1) pick up food from a donation site, (2) deliver it to the donation site, (3) take a picture and repeat. It's a fun, safe, and easy way to still volunteer during tough times for this pilot.

United Way Bay Area is helping to recruit volunteers for this partnership. Copia is a food waste management platform that helps to redistribute excess food. World Central Kitchen helps to delivering meals from restaurants to programs in various communities. This is a pilot of Copia routing software with World Central Kitchen in Alameda and we'd love volunteer feedback.

Requirements: We ask that all volunteers are friendly and reliable. All volunteers must have a car (or driver), car insurance, and the ability to lift 25lbs. Meals are packaged by the restaurant and vehicles should accomodate 100 meals. Volunteers and partners are required to wear a mask and gloves. If you are sick, or have been diagnosied with Covid-19, we ask that you find a different volunteer opportunity.

Volunteers with sign-up for a shift here. Then they will attend a virtual 30 minute orientation and training where they will learn about the app. Volunteers will use a mobile application during their shift to pick-up and drop off the meals. There is a live assistant who can help with any pick-up/delivery questions.

Sign-up below for the shift or shifts that fit your schedule. Feel free to email Anton with additional questions.
