Banco de Alimentos de Buenos Aires (Food Bank of Buenos Aires)
Banco de Alimentos is a non profit organization that help people suffering from hunger. We act by requesting donations of food, out of the commercial market but fit for consumption, companies, farmers and supermarkets, in order to store, sort and distribute it to 1.062 community organizations.
What We Need
You can offer you two types of volunteering :
1 - If you are staying in Argentina for more than 3 months and you have a good level of spanish, we can offer you volunteering in the offices in Human Ressources, Logistics or Mision Entrega (coordination of deliveries). You must be organized, proactive and know how to handle Excel.
2 - You can always come as a volunteer for food classification, It´s a quite simple task but really important for us. It consists of identifying and classifying products in the storehouse. The aim is to ensure good condition and quality of these products, which will later be distributed to some of the many people in need in Argentina.
Besides, as part of the Banco de Alimentos, you would be able to attend to punctual events as kermesses, workshops...
