HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Here 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 thier families. 

DESCRIPTION

If you like working in a fast-paced environment, working in a kitchen with food and great people, and you have 5 or more friends/family members to help you, then this opportunity is for you! Volunteers need to be at least 13 years old for this activity. Volunteers will work in the kitchen to peel, chop, weigh meat, assemble meals, seal, label and lackage our meals that will be delivered to our clients in the community.  We prepare and package over 2200 meals per day! Come help us accomplish this!
