Role(s): Kitchen Coordinator
Description: The Wichita Circles Network is seeking to fill two volunteer Kitchen Coordinator positions.
The Kitchen Coordinator is responsible for running the kitchen on a weekly basis: purchasing and preparing the food, serving our guests, and helping to clean up when the meal is over. Kitchen Coordinators are reimbursed for the food purchases, and there may be an option to use a prepaid card and then turn in receipts.
A very important part of this job is a willingness and interest in serving healthy, wholesome meals, which contribute to our efforts to build a welcoming community. We cook from scratch and focus on ingredients that fresh and in season, while low in fat and sugar. Also, it would be helpful to be comfortable in relating to people from diverse backgrounds, as people from all different areas of Wichita attend our meetings.
This volunteer position takes about 7-8 hours a week - which includes the planning, shopping and preparation of the weekly meal. Although the Kitchen Coordinator is responsible for the weekly meals, the site coordinator and nice group of regular volunteers are on hand to offer additional support.
If you are interested in learning more about the position but have concerns about childcare, reimbursements, or other possible barriers, please contact us to learn more. We are happy to work with you to make this a success.
 On Monday nights, we meet in the Delano district from 5:30-7:30. We serve about 25 people at this location. (we begin serving meals at 5:30, so everything needs to be ready by then)

 On Tuesday nights, we meet in the College Hill area from 5:30-7:30. We serve about 50 people at this location. (we begin serving meals at 5:30, so everything needs to be ready by then)
We are seeking a kitchen coordinator for each location.
