Making meals, under instruction but with little direct supervision, for 70-80 people. The meals are distributed to groups and individuals across the city who cannot access meals for themselves. Working in a professional kitchen.
You will need to be a confident and flexible cook, but not necessarily experienced in a professional kitchen. There will be hygeine regulations to follow. This is a temporary post during the C-19 pandemic, as we use food normally destined for our cafe, catering events, and schools. Once the crisis is over and our cafe and catering arm reopen, there will be further opportunities for voluntary and paid work.
What skills do I need?
Confident cooking skills.
What will I gain?
Experience in a professional kitchen. Learning about food waste issues.
Training and support
There will be some induction, and ad-hoc training as required for equipment. As a Food Work volunteer, you will get a weekly email newsletter, access to an internal website, and volunteer privileges at our Sharehouse market.
The placement will last at least until cafes, restaurants etc. re-open after the pandemic. The work starts at 9 - 10 in the morning. The kitchen is not open every day, there is a rota so that you can pick when you are available. We are flexible around your timetable.
DBS (criminal records) check
The kitchen is accessible by public transport, but we are not encouraging volunteers to use that during the C-19 pandemic.
