Cooking volunteer emergency shelter Kessler Foundation

Volunteer workPermanent

Function description

Our emergency shelter for the night has been made into a day-round shelter. This means that, at a daily basis, a daytime activities program has to be developed for up to 40 people in a vulnerable position.

Part of this program has to do with food awareness. We are currently looking for a volunteer with a passion for cooking and the enthusiasm to share his/her knowledge on the subject!
Together with some of our clients you prepare a nice lunch like a soup, sandwiches, pancakes etc. You and a few of the clients are also in charge of doing groceries at The Hague Market or Lidl.
You involve the clients in every aspect: from getting groceries to doing the dishes afterwards

Working hours
Monday, Wednesday or Friday from 10:00 to 14:00.

We ask:
- a committed volunteer with good social skills
- that you are able to make and keep appointments
- that you are able to work independently
- that you deal with personal information in a responsible manner
- that you are resilient and capable of setting boundaries
- a CGC, the costs of which will be reimbursed by the Kessler Foundation

If you are interested in this (or any other volunteer opportunity) at the Kessler Foundation please feel free to apply through our website!
