Food Prep: Tuesday, 5:30PM-8:30PM
We are always looking for volunteers to help Tuesday night to help prep food for Wednesday’s lunch. Some of the food prep can include cutting fruits and vegetables, peeling vegetables, or making one or two meals ahead of time.
Working in the Kitchen: Wednesday, 9:00AM-2:30PM
Most of the volunteer help needed to run the community kitchen is on Wednesdays when the lunch is offered to the community. Volunteers help set up, run, and clean up the Community Kitchen each week. Duties for volunteers include making various meals for the lunch, restocking food when it gets low, prepping food for the meals, and/or cleaning up when the lunch is done. Help is needed from 9:00am-11:30am (set up and food prep) and 11:30am-2:30pm (food service and clean up). Volunteers can schedule one shift or multiple shifts depending on their schedules.
