Need help to think about the details of a feeding scheme for homeless and people in need in my neighbourhood.

I live close to a very wealthy neighbourhood in Brazil and would like to create a scheme to collect surplus food that restaurants and bars so I can create a feeding scheme for homeless people.
Initially I am thinking of doing this once a week and also use the scheme to collect clothes, shoes, toys and personal hygiene items that can be distributed as well.
I am writing a plan so I am thinking about the details. I don't own a car so I would need to recruit a volunteer that would be willing to fetch the food from the establishments for a start. Then I would need a place to assemble the meals and someone to donate containers...as well as people to help serve and distribute the whole thing, etc...
It would be great if anyone could share experiences around similar projects, things I should do, things be aware of and so on. Thank you so much!
