Amanda the Panda provides a simple meal for families attending our grief support groups. Support Groups are held four times a year for six weeks, Monday evenings. Being able to provide supper on those nights to our families gives parents/caregivers a sense of respite and helps eliminate at least one task to accomplish before arriving.

Volunteers are needed to help prepare, serve, and clean up the kitchen each night of support group. Volunteers and groups (3-4) can provide the food, and prepare the meals, or they can prepare food that Amanda the Panda will provide for the evening. Volunteers would need to be here early enough to prepare the meal for the evening, which can vary, but is usually about 5:00-7:00pm.

Volunteers should have the ability to prepare simple meals for 50-100 people, wash dishes/run a dishwasher, be personable, friendly and reliable. Volunteers will need to fill out a volunteer profile.
