Apply to be the Bread Salvage or Hunger & Homelessness Coordinator

From James Hall ’15:

Interested in hunger and housing issues in the greater Middletown community? Then consider applying to one of the two following positions!

Bread Salvage Coordinator: Bread Salvage is a program that salvages bread from the Cromwell Freihofer’s outlet and delivers it to students at three Middletown elementary schools. Responsibilities of the Bread Salvage coordinator include finding volunteers/drivers, maintaining communication between the Middletown schools and Freihofer’s, and ensuring successful deliveries of bread on a weekly basis. The application closes on April 10th!

Hunger and Homelessness Coordinator: The H&H co-coordinators organize both direct service opportunities and forums for discussing and addressing the root causes of hunger and housing issues in our community. Responsibilities of H&H coordinators include planning and organizing H&H events, discussions, and film screenings around campus, developing and maintaining relationships between Wesleyan and the Middletown community, and overseeing the three H&H subgroups (Food Rescue, Bread Salvage, and Habitat for Humanity).

Both positions are partially paid and are official Office of Community Service staff positions. The application is found on OrgSync here. Email jthall@wesleyan.edu (Bread Salvage) and/or ebieder@wesleyan.edu (H&H) with any questions.

Volunteer with Bread Salvage

Boy with bread

Chloe Holden ’15co-coordinator of a group under the Housing & Hunger program called Bread Salvage, is looking for new volunteers.

To help keep Bread Salvage going, we need volunteers to help out once a week for just an hour and a half – either the Monday run from 1-2:30 p.m., or the Thursday run from 10:30 a.m. to noon. It’s straightforward, fun, and a great fit if you love bread, kids, social justice, world peace, and free donuts.
