Open Kitchen is Manchester’s leading sustainable catering company, producing food in the most ethical way possible. You'll help our work to stop waste, providing ingredients and meals for people struggling with food insecurity across Greater Manchester.
We are looking for diligent, friendly, enthusiastic volunteers to donate a few hours helping us prepare and package fresh nutritious food for families and individuals who need it most in the community.
Come along and try a shift. There is no commitment beyond any single shift for which you sign up. If we only see you once, we're still glad of your help but most choose to return. You are welcome to join us for lunch provided by chefs at the end of your shift. We are happy to pay travel expenses up to £7 daily.
This is a varied and flexible role, and may include any or all of the below:
Food Preparation working with the guidance and support of our chefs. If you have prep experience that's great, but not essential. Chef will show you all you need to know!
Pot Washing both by hand and using our machine, which you'll be trained to use.
Packing including labelling, portioning and boxing cooked food for delivery.
Logistics Support which could include assisting in collecting intercepted food, weighing and recording food data and stock control.
Miscellaneous tasks. There are always random things that need to be done. For example, crate cleaning, relocating equipment or shredding documents!
Minimum commitment level: Once every three months
