Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Care for Friends are currently looking to recruit a team leader for our Thursday food service, to cover periodically throughout 2018.
Every Monday, Thursday and Saturday morning, Care for Friends serves a healthy, delicious meal to up to 100 homeless people. We pride ourselves on serving high quality food, and to provide an enjoyable experience for both our guests and our volunteers.
The role of team leader takes charge of the food service on the day. We start preparing a hot meal at 9am, with a group of volunteers, and serve the food to our guests at 12pm, finishing at 1pm. This is a fun, safe environment, and we are funded by donors and grants, with no government assistance. The team leader will manage the volunteers on the day, of which there are usually up to ten.
The team leader must have previous experience of working in food service, and ideally of leading teams. You must be available to make a regular commitment on Thursdays periodically throughout 2018, and into Spring 2019, and ideally be food sanitation trained. For interested applicants, there will definitely be the opportunity to volunteer at Care for Friends food service, before they take on the responsibility of team leadership.
This is a rewarding role to work in, both volunteers and guests enjoy coming to food service at Care for Friends. Your role will make a positive impact on the local community, and help the good work of Care for Friends to continue.
