Food Shift is looking for passionate and committed volunteers for The Food Shift Kitchen, located at the Alameda Point Collaborative. Our kitchen transforms surplus produce into delicious food for the Alameda Food Bank, City Team Ministries, and various events. Volunteers assist with everything from sorting, cleaning, cutting, peeling, zesting, and packaging meals. Learn and practice valuable knife skills and kitchen safety protocols under the direction of trained Food Shift culinary team members. No prior kitchen prep experience is necessary.

Volunteers must be 12 years or older. Come dressed comfortably with closed-toed, non-slip shoes. No prior kitchen prep experience is necessary.

Our kitchen is open Monday-Thursday: 10am - 2pm

*Shifts are ~3.5 hrs and we provide a simple vegetarian meal.
