    Organization: La Soupe

    About this opportunity:

    Volunteers are a vital part of La Soupe's mission to Rescue, Transform, and Share. Every time you volunteer, you will leave knowing that you have helped to provide 15,500 servings per week for our neighbors living in food insecurity. Since 2016, over 200 active volunteers contributed 9,270+ hours of service to La Soupe. We need volunteers every day to help keep our 81 share agencies fed.

    For Food Runner volunteer opportunities, we use Food Rescue US. You will pick up surplus food from our Food Donors (grocers, restaurants, etc.) and deliver it to La Soupe. Or, if you pick up from La Soupe, you will deliver to our receiving agencies. Typically, this will take an hour of your time.

    For Kitchen help, we use a system called Duplie to schedule and self-manage volunteer kitchen shifts. You can come to La Soupe and help in various ways: sorting, cleaning, storing produce, chopping, and light food prep.

    For Culinary Education help, we offer a variety of classes to students with varying schedules throughout the week. These classes need volunteers to run smoothly and on time. On Saturdays, we are in need of Teaching Assistants and Prep Chefs for certain classes (not all). These positions will require a special training session and a self-funded background check.

    If you are interested in any of the volunteer opportunities listed above, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Ali Ulanski, at alison@lasoupe.org. When contacting Ali, please indicate which avenue of volunteer work you would like to pursue.

    To solve the climate crisis, Citizens’ Climate Lobby empowers people to use the tools of democracy to build political will for climate solutions in Congress. This 15-week Climate Advocacy Certificate Program is for anyone interested in learning and applying CCL’s methods for climate action. Participants learn how to lobby their members of Congress, use social media for climate advocacy, write and submit letters-to-the-editor, perform grassroots and grasstops outreach, and more.

In addition, participants receive information about internships, events, actions, and other opportunities with CCL and partner organizations. Throughout the program, participants will:

    • Write and submit a letter-to-the-editor or op-ed.
    • Participants have the option to:
    • Join their local CCL chapter.

    Organization: Keep Cincinnati Beautiful

    About the opportunity:

    Every year, thousands of volunteers come together to improve the quality of life in their community during the Great American Cleanup. From March through November, Keep Cincinnati Beautiful provides cleanup supplies and logistical support for a wide variety of cleanup and beautification projects.

    Cincinnati is the gateway to Ohio. With millions of people traveling along I-75 and I-71 every week, we need to make a good impression! Clean and beautified highways welcome visitors and encourage residents and businesses to live, work, and play in Cincinnati. Hundreds of volunteers pick up litter and beautify Cincinnati’s dirtiest roadways in our annual State Roadway Cleanup. During the State Roadway Cleanup, we partner with the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) and volunteers to pick up trash and debris from the sides of the most traveled highways around Cincinnati.

    Here’s how it works: We all meet at a centralized location to rally before the event (ODOT Garage at 1400 Seymour Ave). Teams are assigned cleanup locations and receive safety gear. Then we carpool to those locations to pick up litter along the highway. Each team is accompanied by an Ohio Department of Transportation crew member for enhanced safety.
