My Travel Story

by: Edvin Mujkić Start Date: May 26, 2018 - End Date: Aug 8, 2018
I want to go on this volunteer trip with my girlfriend. We are passionate about helping others and traveling. We would like to explore new places and cultures while doing community service. We want to participate in the Fighting Food Waste and Hunger project in Lisbon, Portugal. We both love food and we are well aware that food leftovers often go to waste when they shouldn't. So many people can't afford meals while others throw thier food away. That is why we want to help to make a change in Lisbon, to feed people who desperately need it. We will support a network of centers which recover food, in good conditions, from local restaurants, supermarkets and cafés and re-distribute it among families, elderly and homeless people in need. We will be working across the centers in Lisbon and our tasks will include collecting the food from local providers, assisting with packaging it, assisting with sorting and storage of any food left for the next day, distributing it to the families and clean up at the end of the shift. One or two people can not make much progress on their own so that is why we want to help their team so we can make a big difference together.
