Overview: Do you love to cook but don't have enough people to cook for? Do you love meeting people from around the world? Here's the solution - provide a homemade dinner for hostel guests! Join our volunteer team, and plan and facilitate a low-cost, homemade group meal. We have easy recipes for you to use, or you can be inventive and create your own meal. This is a unique experience that helps our hostellers interact with other travelers from around the globe, as well as get to know local volunteers and staff.
