Have you been wanting to volunteer with a group of well meaning adults not affiliated with any political or religious organization? Have you watched way too many food network shows and long to cook in a professional kitchen? Do you want to give back to those less fortunate? If so, then please join us.
Just Call Us Volunteers is looking for volunteers to help us prepare and serve nutritious meals for the city of San Diego's homeless shelters in downtown San Diego, California.
The day begins with food prep at the "Just Call Us Volunteers" kitchen; which is also a shared use commercial kitchen that serves as the headquarters for "Just Call Us Volunteers."
We will start at 9am at the kitchen to prep and then we will load up the food and caravan together to the shelters (Rachels Womens Shelter and Neil Good Day Center located downtown San Diego). We will serve the meal, buffet style, then caravan back to the kitchen for clean-up.
No need to bring your ticket. We just use Event Brite to automate our volunteer sign-up. One registration per person. Signing up for the shift includes cook/prep, serve and clean-up. If you can only do certain hours, please email us after registration to notify us so we can plan for the proper amount of volunteers. It is greatly appreciated.
Professional chefs welcome but NO experience is required - just bring a good sense of humor and roll up your sleeves. Gloves and aprons are provided. No need to bring any supplies.
For volunteer safety: Please wear closed toe shoes, comfy clothes (no tank tops) and put your hair up. Your registration also means that you understand that you are volunteering at your own risk. Waivers will be signed for each person upon check-in prior to working in the kitchen.
Children are welcome but must be supervised at all times by their parents. Children must be at least 13 years old to work in the kitchen and at least 8 years old to serve.
