Recruiting Organization: Notre Dame Mission Volunteers, AmeriCorps: Rochester

Notre Dame Mission Volunteers, AmeriCorps (NDMVA) is seeking applicants to serve as a Full-time AmeriCorps Member at St. Peter's Kitchen in Rochester from August 2024-June 2025.

St. Peter’s Kitchen has been serving the Westside community of Rochester since 1982, when their program was founded by Father Richard Czierwin, SS.CC. They started out as a once-a-week Saturday soup and sandwich program. Today they serve a well-balanced lunch to an average of 160 people a day, Monday through Friday. Guests come from all walks of life; many face troubles with addiction, mental illness, physical illness, homelessness, and severe poverty. They are a non-referral agency meaning anyone who walks through our doors is welcome to share in a meal. Many food programs in they area require income documentation in order to be served. They feel there should be a few programs in the city that are open to all - like St. Peter’s.

The AmeriCorps Member will serve assume multiple community-facing roles in our existing services to the community, including assisting in the food pantry program/daily meal, creating content for their website and social media, data gathering, assisting in special events, and assisting in social work.
