Recipe creator / food blogger using what is available at the food bank this week

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Midtown Family Services

Midtown Family Services is seeking creative chefs to create, then blog about, meals using inexpensive table top equipment (blender, microwave oven, hotplate, crockpot, rice cooker, and airfryer), basic implements, and whatever happens to be available that week at the food bank or already in the pantry from previous visits to the food bank, within the quite tight confines of our office kitchenette.

These limits reflect our goal to encourage our low-income clients, many of whome are single persons in efficiency apartments, to take advantage of the free resources available through the food bank, while improving the nutritional value of the food our clients are consuming, without compromising and maybe even increasing enjoyment of food.

Blogging platforms will include a video display on the wall of our reception area, our Facebook page, and YouTube.

Hours are by arrangement within our regular office hours, 9:00am to 5:00pm Monday through Friday excluding holidays. Chefs may volunteer just once or regularly. Chefs willing to volunteer regularly may assist with the food ordering and shopping at the food bank if they like, thereby increasing the variety of ingredients available to use in the food creation.

A staff member eager to become a better chef him or herself will be available to assist with the food prep and writing, photographing, or video recording if volunteer chef so desires.
