Our Mission: At Lifelong our mission is to "...empower people living with or at risk of HIV and/or other chronic conditions to live healthier lives." Lifelong has robust client management and support programs for housing, medical, wellness, dental, aging and disability client + sexual health education and prevention for both adults and youth. And through it all, the heart of our organization since its start 35 years ago, has been our Chicken Soup Brigade program.
Every week our Chicken Soup Brigade Client Care Advocates, Nutritionists, Chefs and Cooks, Warehouse and Distribution staff and 200+ regular weekly Volunteers work together to make, package, bag and deliver 1000+ nutritionally specific meals for clients in the greater Seattle metro area living with HIV/AIDS and other chronic health conditions
Where you come in: You can help people living with a chronic illness, and have a GREAT time doing it! Every meal in our Kitchen is made from scratch using whole ingredients. Volunteers in our Chicken Soup Brigade Kitchen help prepare and package meals for our clients; slicing, dicing and peeling is the name of the game and a hugely important part of cooking nutritionally specific 'food as medicine’ for our clients. The Kitchen Helper role is an opportunity to work on a team of fantastic people who love food and nutrition and, to do something very important for our community.
