Position Kitchen Assistant
Impact Statement Our mission at Saanich Neighbourhood Place is to enrich lives through caring programs that connect people to each other and their community.
Description One of the ways that we make those connections is through our food security programs. Some of the essential services that we provide, such as: Community Kitchen Programs, Family Dinners, Child Care, as well as other Parenting Programs are all opportunities for providing healthy food options to families within our community.

We need volunteers to help us carry out some of these programs. Our capable and talented staff work hard to bring healthy and diverse food to our community on a budget. Their time is valuable and we would love to have a volunteer step in to support them as they do this. Our volunteers are essential in the kitchen, assisting with food preparation, serving food and cleanup. (Our kitchen staff are so grateful for every dish our volunteers wash!)

Specifically we would love to get someone to help with preparing snacks and meals for the children in our preschool and day care.
Training Details On the job training will occur with our knowledgeable, dynamic and incredible food security team!
