HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

At Community Servings, we believe in the power of food to heal and most importantly to bring hope to our clients who are dealing with critical or chronic illnesses. You will be preparing and packaging the food in our industrial kitchen which will then go out and be delivered to our clients. You will be directly helping those without access to healthy food, and who are too sick to go to the store or make food for their families. 

DESCRIPTION

Do you like working in a kitchen, being around lots of people and working with food? If you are 13 years or older, you can volunteer to work in our kitchen. Volunteers work to prepare and package over 2200 meals per day! It is busy, fast paced, and tons of fun! 


ITEMS NEEDED

1. Shoes that completely cover and protect the feet (socks and sneakers preferred); pants without rips or tears; at least a T-shirt length shirt sleeve. 

2. A great attitude; a desire to work with a lot of awesome people and be part of a team!


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

You must be 13 or older to volunteer. If under 18, you must have a parent or guardian come to orientation with you to sign our waiver.
