Calling All Cooks!

Love to cook and volunteer? Our kitchen might be just the place for you! Volunteering in our kitchen is a great way to become a part of a small group of committed volunteers bringing high-quality, nutritious meals to our community. Due to the nature of this option, we require a 3 month commitment of volunteering.
The volunteer slot is from approximate 12pm-4pm, but varies week to week. During this time you will be helping to meal prep, cook, and receive food shipments. You will also be asked to help clean up by sweeping or washing dishes.
“I love to cook, I love to bake, there is nothing better than to work with others who have the same interests in creating wonderful meals and desserts for others who can not have wonderful food that is good for your health and is pleasing to the eye and mouth as well as tasty! We at the FNSP strive for that creativity and bond together to give anybody that desires a fresh, delicious, healthy experience! And that makes me feel like I am helping ¬†someone, and that makes me happy and good!”
-Tim Paquette, kitchen volunteer
