OPSI COVID-19 Innovative Response Tracker

Mission: Let’s mobilise to secure our plates – connecting french volunteers with the agriculture sector

Innovative response

Mobilisons-nous pour sécuriser nos assiettes' is a platform that links farmers needing seasonal workers with potential volunteers.

If volunteers have free time, they can work in fields, orchards or farms for a few hours through registering online on https://mission.wizi.farm/register, fill in the tasks that they are able to do, and their form will be sent directly to farmers.

Similarly, farmers can also complete a form to help find workers for their specific tasks.

Specific issues addressed and anticipated impact

Covid-19 has prevented many farmers from being able to farm their produce due to the impacts on the planned seasonal workforce, who are often migrant workers in the spring.

THis innovation will enable farmers to connect with French citizen volunteers (many of whom are looking for reasons to get outdoors for their health) to help fulfill their farming commitments.
