Work with a Professional Chef

“Yes, Chef!” Prepare nutritious and delicious meals under the guidance of a professional chef. The pantry's Hot Meal Program serves more than 1,000 meals every week to anyone in need. Working as part of a small dynamic team, you’ll assist Chef with meal prep, like peeling and chopping vegetables. Or you may be asked to help out with cleaning and organizing kitchen storage spaces. Be ready to be on your feet the whole time.
