FoodCycle Prestwich Hosting Team COOK&COLLECT

FoodCycle volunteers are welcoming and committed people who want to create delicious meals and lasting relationships within their community. As a Hosting Volunteer, you’ll support the team in creating a warm, welcoming environment for our guests, whilst maintaining all social distancing and hygiene guidance. You’ll help guests collect food from our venue, be a friendly face on arrival, whist helping to maintain queues and ensuring you are on hand to share any allergy advice provided by the cooking team. You’ll be supported by a FoodCycle qualified Project Leader, who will help you to develop your hosting skills. Please only sign up to this role if you are sure you can attend. The team is deliberately small to ensure that social distancing is maintained, so if volunteers drop out at short notice we may not be able to deliver our service.

BEFORE VOLUNTEERING
Do any of the following apply to you or someone in your household?
·       have a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
·       have a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
·    have loss or change to my sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal Most people with coronavirus have at least one of these symptoms.

If 'YES' to any of the above, please do not volunteer. Instead, follow the guidance on NHS website https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

REMEMBER DURING VOLUNTEERING WITH FOODCYCLE TO
·       wash your hands more often - with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use a hand sanitiser when you: get home or start volunteering; blow your nose, sneeze or cough; eat or handle food
·       avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
·       avoid close contact with people who have symptoms
·       cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin and wash your hands
·       clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and e.g. door handles, utensils ·       wash your hands fully before and after each interaction, or use a hand sanitiser if this is not possible
·       if possible, wear face coverings in enclosed public spaces where social distancing is not possible or where you are more likely to meet people you do not normally meet. For example, on public transport or in some shops. Face coverings can help us protect each other and reduce the spread of the disease if you are suffering from coronavirus, but not showing symptoms.
