Food handling

Every food distribution and food processing centre is different. Each one varies in; size, the type of food they get, how they collect and store food and how they process food. 

In each one there will be staff and volunteers working together to help reduce food waste. 

Here you will find information on the different roles and responsibilities you might see in a food distribution or food processing centre. 

There are also tools and resources to help train staff and volunteers, including those who may have been out of work for a while. 

Staff/volunteer evaluation

Here is a template form to help with evaluating the progress of staff/volunteers in developing the skills they need to undertake the roles in a food processing or food distribution centre.

This form has been created by Panier De La Mer, a food distribution centre in France.  You can adapt the form to make it relevant to your setting
