St. John's Kitchen operates largely through a volunteer workforce, 80% of which are patrons themselves. Each day, St. John's Kitchen feeds up to 300 people.
In an environment where people seem to have so little, there exists an immense generosity - a reminder that people who find themselves living in poverty are often not those responsible for their impoverishment.
Only because of the many volunteers at St. John's Kitchen does this wonderful project succeed. Working at St. John's Kitchen is fun, rewarding and extremely worthwhile.
There are 3 main volunteer shifts:
- 9:00am-11:00am: preparing the meal for the day.
- 11:30am-1:00pm: serving the meal, bussing tables, and washing dishes.
- 1:00pm-4:00pm: clean-up (this is when we usually need the most help)
We need people for all of these shifts and value people to stay as long as they can. If you have not volunteered at St John's Kitchen before please contact us so we can give you an orientation.
