A mini adventure with FareShare: Jorge’s Story

8 January 2019

International student Jorge volunteers at FareShare Sussex and has been part of the team since October 2018.

Jorge is studying for his Master’s in Development Studies at Sussex University and first heard about volunteering at FareShare from his lecturer.

“I’m very interested in food waste, not only in the UK”, says Jorge. “I think the work FareShare does is amazing and really valuable, helping out so many people and reducing the amount of food waste in Sussex.”

Jorge enjoys getting to know his fellow volunteers as well as delivering to the charities. “The people light up when they receive the food. Every delivery is a mini-adventure!”

Because of FareShare, Jorge is taking steps to cut down the amount of food he wastes. “It has made me more aware of the food I really need and now I try to make the most of what I buy at home.”

Find out what you could do for your local FareShare regional centre and & sign up to volunteer with FareShare here.
