Lead Cook

  • VO83769


If you like cooking, learning new recipes or want to gain catering skills or experience then becoming part of the lively Kitchen Team might interest you!
At each session one of our experienced volunteers will be the Lead Cook who decides, once they have seen what food donations are available, what to make for the meal.
The Lead Cook is an experienced volunteer who will support their team. Together with the other volunteers they will plan what tasks are needed to ensure the meal is ready for the participants. All volunteers are given appropriate tasks dependent on their experience and interests.
