Kitchen Assistant Volunteer
Volunteering as a Kitchen Assistant at Moveable Feast puts you right in the middle of all the culinary action! Kitchen Assistants directly impact our clients by packaging, labeling, and sorting our medically-tailored meals, chopping and seasoning ingredients, and/or making sandwiches and produce bags. The fun in the kitchen also includes light cleaning!
Requirements for Kitchen Volunteering:
The Moveable Feast Kitchen is a commercial production kitchen which has specific requirements and guidelines to ensure everyone’s safety. These following elements are important for our Clients’ welfare and our volunteer’s safety.
Food Safety: Staff and volunteers must follow strict sanitary guidelines which include: hand washing, wearing hair nets, aprons and gloves, and proper food handling practices. Moveable Feast provides all necessary kitchen gear.
Personal Safety: Requires the physical ability to work in cold temperatures (such as freezers), standing for up to 3 hours, working with kitchen equipment, lifting up to 25 lbs. and full dexterity to handle food, knives and carts.
Please note that shift tasks vary by production needs. If you have physical restrictions, please contact Volunteer Services to see if accommodations can be made.
