Food Rescue Drivers & Driver Assistants

Go Eco
Working Hours

Go Eco (Waikato Environment Centre) is the Waikato's largest environment hub; we are a voice for the environment, a centre for learning and a catalyst for change. We provide community education, collaborate with and support regional environmental groups, explore the impact of colonisation on the environment, and operate a Bike Hub and Food Rescue Service.

We are on the lookout for volunteers who can drive our manual truck to pick up rescued food and deliver it to Free-Stores around our city and region. As well as time spent driving, this is a physical role. Drivers and assistants will need to be able to physically lift / carry heavy items and be able to climb in and out of a truck without issue.

We are a team who enjoy laughs and a positive work environment which runs on supporting each other. You'll be part of a network who are helping to redistribute food to people who need it, while reducing the emissions created from sending food to landfill.
