The DTES Neighbourhood House is looking for volunteers to join our Kids Kitchen program. The Kids Kitchen which runs every Sunday from 3-6 pm is a cooking skill development program for kids aged between 8-11. This is a 12 week kid friendly program. Each weekend, staff, volunteers and program participants come together to cook and partake in a meal. The recipes incorporate food philosophy of DTES Neighbourhood House and are age group appropriate. In addition, the program incorporates games and art projects. From time to time, we also have field trips.
The Neighbourhood House also introduces children to the use of the humble blender and courts their nutritional imaginations with delicious smoothies. From here they branch out into more demanding recipes. Children learn skills based food safe and cooking as well as nutrition and planning. Each 12 week session ends with a family celebration highlighting a dinner prepared by participants.
We ideally seek volunteers who have the ability to apply creative problem solving, have experience working with children and youth, and have experience with food handling and preparation. The volunteer shifts are every Sunday afternoon from 2:45p.m. to 6:15 p.m. We ask for a minimum 12 week commitment for this position. This role does require volunteers to undergo a mandatory criminal record check.
We would love you to join our team and help us prepare a meal for our community.
If you are interested please send us an email.
We are located at: 573 East Hastings Street, Vancouver, BC, V6A 1P9
