Volunteer with the Teaching Kitchen

Community Servings’ Teaching Kitchen program is a 12-week job-training program for people interested in careers in the food service industry who face barriers to full-time employment. As they learn food preparation and cooking techniques, trainees also help our culinary team prepare the meals we deliver to our clients each day.

Help with Program Outreach

Choose a neighborhood of Boston and spend a few hours dispersing Teaching Kitchen outreach flyers to targeted locations such as community centers, libraries, health centers, grocery stores, laundromats, corner stores, etc. Timing is flexible and you can go on your own or with a friend! We will provide you with a stack of outreach flyers, tacks, and a 1-day T-pass, if needed.

To sign up, contact Allison Sequeira or call 617.522.7777.

Online Job Applications and Mock Interviews

As our Teaching Kitchen job trainees approach their graduation, they’re hard at work finalizing resumes and making a plan for job search efforts. Many individuals in our program have limited computer literacy and/or limited English literacy.

We’re looking for volunteers who would be available to be paired one-on-one with a trainee to help complete online job applications. Each trainee would have a list of 3-5 online job applications that they would like to complete, as well as a finalized resume. The goal of the morning would be for the volunteer to complete online applications, with the trainee present and providing the necessary information. It would be a huge help to our trainees to have several job applications fully completed so that, hopefully, they can start getting out on interviews!

Volunteers should be 18+, comfortable with the use of computers, and proficient in English

Upcoming Dates:
February 28th, March 7th, and March 14th

Ideally, we’re looking for people who can commit to all 3 Thursday mornings from 9am-noon. 

To sign up, contact Allison Sequeira or call 617.522.7777.
