Eco Soup is a student-led social enterprise responding to the issue of food waste. We use surplus food sourced by The Real Junk Food Project in Pudsey. This food would otherwise go to landfill and be wasted. Volunteers make healthy, nutritious, vegan soup, which is available on a Pay as You Feel basis to all student and staff. Last year we were able to expand this service and open three days a week at City Campus. The project was initially funded by NUS Student Eats but by the end of this year we would like the enterprise to be self-sufficient, trading on a daily basis.
Last year we have diverted over 300kg of of food away from landfill, served over 200 portions of soup to students and volunteers gave up 300 hours of their own time.
We want to continue to grow and we need you help!
The Marketing and Social Media Coordinators are responsible for producing promotional posters/flyers, photographing even, generating content for social media, managing Eco Soup's Facebook / Instagram accounts and helping to think of new and exciting ways to engage students.
The time required is approximately half a day per week but coule be few minutes each day. There will be one group meeting per month in which all Eco Soup volunteers will be encourgaed to attend
