Wednesday Prep Team

We provide a warm meal for the vulnerable of our city 365 days a year. Central to this task are our food prep teams who diligently cook and prepare a 3 course meal every night. Cooking in bulk is a different experience to our own private kitchens but with the support of our existing experienced volunteers anyone can help feed our friends. 

The role can involve a range of culinary tasks and we cook a variety of meals including vegetarian options such as curry, pasta bakes and pies. 

Ideally our volunteers will have experience cooking for large numbers but it is not mandatory. All we ask is that you approach your volunteering with an awareness of food and kitchen hygiene, and with a strong desire to help and provide for others. Being the foundation of our work can be a very rewarding role. 

It is a fabulous way to spend a few hours each week.
