Volunteers Needed for the Soup Kitchen Veggie Crew

The Soup Kitchen is looking for volunteers for the Veggie Crew.  Every 5-6 weeks this team gets together at the Soup Kitchen in the basement of St. Andrew's Cathedral to chop and package the vegetables that are used in our nutritional soups.   

Safe social distancing practices are followed.

Volunteers needed:

Team Leader:

Organize date, time and volunteers for veggie chopping.

Monitor in the freezer the frozen veggies so next chop is timely and then liaison with Sheila Connelly, Operations Coordinator, to order the required produce and any needed supplies. 

Ensure equipment is properly maintained.  (The Soup Kitchen just purchased a new commercial chopper for improved efficiency!)

Time commitment 4-6 hours.   

Volunteers: 

Chop and bag veggies. 

Help with storing veggies in freezer. 

Wash dishes, clean up work areas and floor. Put compost and other refuse in containers. 

Team work, flexibility and reliability is important. 

Time commitment 3 hours.

Next planned veggie crew will be at the end of August.

If you want to volunteer, or learn more, please contact either:

Janet Moir               (250) 655-6781          tjlochside@telus.net

Sheila Connelly       (250) 598-4339         connellyhome@shaw.ca

The 9-10 Club Serving Soup to the Hungry greatly values our dedicated volunteers and we thank everyone in advance for considering this important request.  Please share this email with family and friends!
