An incredible team of over 1,000 volunteers in Sydney work tirelessly, helping to serve customers at our OzHarvest Market Waterloo and Refettorio, help out in our kitchens, assist our drivers with food rescue, help with community events and Cooking for a Cause corporate classes, assist with practical session delivery of our NEST, Nourish and FEAST education programs and generally provide much-needed support for everything we do!

Most of our volunteering opportunities are based at either our Alexandria warehouse and kitchen, our Waterloo Market, or our Refettorio in Surry Hills. Shifts are generally Monday to Friday during business hours, however we do have limited regular weekend shifts and occasional out of hours shifts at community festivals and events.
