VIVE Saturday Kitchen Volunteer

VIVE has a significant need for volunteers to assist in meal prep and service in our kitchen at Vive Shelter for Saturday Lunch and Dinner.

Duties:

Food is healing! Residents at Vive go through long, difficult journeys to finally end up claiming asylum in Buffalo. When they arrive they need a moment to recharge, find safety, while being both figuratively & literally fed. Our kitchen volunteers ensure we share culturally relevant nourishment with the families staying at the shelter. Volunteers work with a resident-led team who help guide hospitality for their peers. Duties include working with a team of multi-lingual, multi-national residents to help prepare and serve meals.

Who you'll work with:

Vive's Kitchen Managers and Hospitality Team along with residents staying at Vive.

Minimum time commitment:

Once a week on an ongoing basis is ideal. 1-2 times a month works too! We serve 3 meals a day every day 365 days a year so there's always help to give.

Requirements (other than COVID vaccination):

Comfortable taking direction from the kitchen managers for safe meal prep. Masks worn at all times inside facility.

People with the following skills/experience would be great here:

Passionate about cooking. No need for previous experience cooking for large groups. Interest in sharing cultures with people different from you. Conversational fluency in a language other than English is great but not required at all.

Schedule:

Meal prep and service happens in shifts. Lunch is daily and prep starts around 10 a.m. and goes until about 12:30 p.m. Dinner goes from 3-6 p.m. Those who serve would be welcome to join for the meal.
