Current Volunteer Opportunities with CSF


We run a range of different awareness-raising stalls throughout the year and are always looking for volunteers. Depending on the event, we focus on a range of issues such as food waste, healthy and sustainable diets, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions via food consumption choices. We often have tasters, freebies and activities for children.

If this sounds like something you may be interested in, please contact Bev (, or sign up to our volunteer mailing list below for updates!


During the summer and throughout the year we take on interns, who get involved and help with a wide range of activities, projects, campaigns and administrative duties. The internships are for a minimum of eight weeks, for four days a week. This role is unpaid, but on work days the intern will receive a free lunch, and a contribution may be made towards travel and/or accommodation expenses. Please see here for more details or contact

Other Volunteering Opportunities

At Cambridge Sustainable Food we sometimes have other volunteering opportunities including working with businesses (volunteers need some business experience), doing research for the website and projects, as well as website editing and managing social media. If you have experience in any of these fields and would like to get involved, please contact Bev on
