The Salvation Army of Summit County

  • 23 people are interested

Our need for help with volunteers in the kitchen continues to grow. We have just added a new site we're preparing meals for in the Akron community.

The kitchen staff now prepares food Monday-Friday for the Kenmore Community Center, Patterson Park Community Center, Summit Lake Community Center as well as our Salvation Army locations in Akron and Barberton.

Come join the best group of volunteers in Summit County! Our kitchen staff is top notch and a great place to volunteer.

We are looking for help in the kitchen from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM on Monday through Friday (or whichever days you can help). The kitchen is the front line for our daily food operation here. Without the volunteers to pack the meals on the prep line - the food can't get to the people who are hungry.

The primary roles for this position would be as follows:

- Working on the food production line assembling meals for our hot meal program
- Assembling snacks for the day camp and pre-school
- Daily clean up and sanitizing
- Helping where the need is most

Volunteers would work directly with our experienced Food Service Manager.

This is good experience for someone who wants to learn more about the food service industry as well as a volunteer who is retired and would like to come help at The Salvation Army.

Must be able to stand for extended periods of time
Must be able to lift at least 10 pounds

No experience necessary. Just a heart for the people of our community.
