One of our greatest blessings is having over 150 volunteers, from all walks of life, donate their time and talent to St. Peter’s Kitchen. THANK YOU to all our volunteers- past, present, and future.
With a small paid staff, volunteers are truly the lifeblood of St. Peter’s. From school and church groups that come once or twice a year to individuals who come once or more a week, we always seem to meet the demands of our day with the workforce we have.
Our volunteer program generally operates Monday-Friday from 9am-1:30pm. We have a wide array of volunteer opportunities
The jobs involve making salads, pouring beverages, salvaging produce for freezing, salvaging fruit for fruit cups, slicing desserts, general cleaning, serving the community, greeting the community, dishwashing, restocking the supply room, and picking up deliveries.
Group events need to be scheduled ahead of time. Usually two months ahead of an actual request is required as we have a limited number of slots available. We can handle groups up to 10 which includes moderators or parents. The children’s protocol exists for groups.
ALL CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 16 MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT
14-year-olds and older are allowed to handle knives and work on food prep.
If you’re 13 years old or younger, we will try to find non-food jobs for you to take part in.
We do not allow any child under the age of 10 to come, except for Holidays with their family. We understand many parents would like to give their children opportunity to serve, but we have found that younger children do not have the attention span needed to enjoy the day.
If you have a younger child that would like to do something to help us, they can make decorative placemats or candy bags at home and then bring them to St. Peter’s Kitchen.This allows the child to do something creative and help in a different way. This activity would need to be scheduled with us.
What to Wear
Like our regular volunteers, we ask that all groups be aware of the environment here and dress appropriately: No short-shorts, flip flops, low cut blouses, tight jeans, etc.
Please bring a hat. All must have hats to serve, bringing an apron is an option if you prefer.
