Have kitchen, have volunteers, need chef
Volunteers at work in the kitchen at St. Dunstan's

St Dunstan's needs a volunteer Chef for our Tuesday Community Dinner Program. They have a wonderful commercial kitchen, well stocked with all the tools of the trade. They have a well organized team of volunteers to do all the prep work, but they need a leader!

The menu is determined by the food donated
by two area Safeway stores

Every Tuesday the day starts by gleaning produce and donations from two local Safeway stores. A survey of donated goods determines the menu for a community meal of 100+ people and 100 more in two tent cities. 

Next, a trip to Cash and Carry to purchase proteins and ingredients to complete the meal. The Senior Warden, also an experienced cook, will meet there with you and pay for the food.

Upon returning to church, assign tasks to volunteers according to their ability. Supervise and assist in setting up the buffet table, beverage station and dessert buffet.

Meal service is from 5:30 until 7:00pm, consisting of two entrees, a starch, a vegetable and a host of eclectic salads and fruit dishes. Food is then divided up for the two tent cities and delivered utilizing a hot holding Cambro and a volunteer truck.

Returning from the tent cities, determine the volume and condition of remaining food for next day's delivery to camps.

If they get more than one volunteer, they are glad to set up a rotation!

Call the church 206-363-4319 or Karen Tynes 901-237-0248, or email to find out more or to volunteer.
