Women & Children’s Free Restaurant & Community Kitchen has an exciting opportunity for teens. Our Teen Leadership Board offers students from local high schools unique ways to gain leadership experience and to learn about the importance of philanthropy and volunteerism. The purpose of our Teen Board is to raise awareness about the mission and programs of WCFR and to provide ways to participate in projects that support families in need.

Teen Board membership provides valuable learning experiences. Many of the activities are designed to create a team of individuals who are working for the best interest of those who are unable to help themselves. Members can earn community service hours for school or service club requirements from a nonprofit organization in supervised settings and activities. Verification of volunteer hours will be provided and, if requested, letters of recommendation to colleges or employers will also be made available to members in good standing.

Responsibilities | Requirements

In addition to having completed the 8th grade, Teen Board applicants must:

  • Complete the Teen Board application available at https://www.volgistics.com/appform/411036921
  • Attend an interview.
  • Commit to attend meetings and participate in teen board activities.

Participation Expectations

  • Attend scheduled meetings (typically a minimum of six monthly meetings will be held; dates and times TBD).
  • Participate in fundraising activities and volunteer projects.
  • Work as part of a team, be a good communicator, and be willing to put in time beyond meeting dates if necessary.

Teen Board members must be mature, responsible, compassionate teens who enjoy working with people and making new friends. Members will serve from October through May and are asked to attend a minimum of six meetings to complete training and to participate in planning and completion of projects. Meetings are held in the afternoon or evening and other activities may take place at additional times. Please carefully consider whether you are ready to apply for the Teen Board. Visit with your parents. It is a commitment and we expect enthusiastic participation. The reward of knowing you helped provide meals to families in your community will be priceless. You will make a difference on this board!

Mission Statement

Women & Children’s Free Restaurant & Community Kitchen (WCFR) provides a vital safety net that fills nutritional gaps for women and children in need while fostering dignity and respect, both within our restaurant and in the community.

Description

We planned to serve 100,000 meals in 2020, but the needs of our community quickly changed and we launched a dynamic response. Since March of 2020, we have provided over 4 million meals through curbside services and collaboration with 19 local nonprofit organizations. We serve our community with dignity and compassion, guided by the belief that everyone deserves good food.

WCFR offers two core programs. Meal and Grocery Distribution provides free nutritious scratch-made meals, produce, dairy, proteins, and non-perishable items through contact-less curbside distribution. Nutrition-to-Go (NTG) distributes free, nutritious food meals with other community organizations. 75% of our NTG meals are consumed at homeless shelters and housing programs.
