I have had a wonderful experience volunteering at the Soup Kitchen. The tasks are easy and very rewarding. This is an excellent place to volunteer. Although, some of the staff could be more corteous and understanding of the people that come there to eat. Also, the team leaders could take more iniative when giving out tasks to volunteers.
