Required Role

Volunteer Cooks and Hosts

Key responsibilities

Roll your sleeves up, sport a fetching hairnet and join the kitchen team to produce a three-course vegetarian meal using surplus food. You’ll be peeling, chopping, frying, mixing, boiling, serving and washing up. But most of all, you’ll have a lot of fun. You don’t need to have any previous cooking experience, you just need to get stuck in! As a Hosting Volunteer, you’ll support the team in creating a warm, welcoming environment for our guests. You’ll serve food, share a meal with our guests, encourage conversation and clean up after the meal. You’ll be supported by a FoodCycle qualified Project Leader, who will help you develop your hosting skills.
