The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
This opportunity is weekly on Tuesdays and/or Sundays from 3:30 - 6:30pm.
Our Lady's Inn provides shelter for up to 13 families each for 12 months. During their stay, all meals are provided and meal prep volunteers are always welcome.
We serve dinner at 5:30pm daily. Volunteers are needed approximately two hours before meal time to assist with preparation and then serving meals.
The kitchen can comfortably fit up to 4 people, though 1-2 is perfect. Children 12 and under are not allowed in the kitchen. Volunteers 13 - 17 must be accompanied by an adult.
Volunteers will work directly under the Kitchen Manager to follow all recipes and safety regulations. Experience baking and cooking preferred. Experience working directly with a vulnerable, at-risk population preferred. The kitchen can be quite a social space, so a volunteer who can multi-task would be a great fit.
If you enjoy cooking, baking, cleaning, and serving families - this is the position for you!
All volunteers will need to submit paperwork and attend orientation before their first day.
