Dear Prospective Volunteer Group Coordinator,
Thank you for your interest in Project Chicken Soup. We are a volunteer organization whose mission is to prepare and deliver kosher meals to people living with HIV/AIDS, and we rely on the generosity of individuals and groups such as yours to run our program as well as for financial funding. These are the guidelines we ask our volunteers to follow. Please read them carefully before making a commitment to volunteer.
Location and Dates
We cook and deliver meals two Sundays a month from our kitchen in Culver City.
Please contact us at Volunteer@projectchickensoup.org to reserve space for you and your group.
Cooking and Delivery Options
We need volunteers both to cook and to deliver meals for our clients. Those who plan to cook must arrive at the kitchen promptly at 8:00 a.m. We generally finish cooking between 12 and 12:30 p.m., at which time food deliveries are sent out. Volunteers who are delivering only should arrive no later than 11:45 a.m., and will be given two to four delivery assignments. Deliveries can take up to one hour. We ask that large groups who come to cook also commit as many volunteers as possible to help deliver. Please remember that this volunteer process is twofold, and that both cooking and delivering are crucial to our program.
General Safety and Kitchen Cleanliness
Please note: We require a list of the names and phone numbers of volunteers who plan to deliver at least three days before the cooking date in order to plan a drop-off schedule. Remember to contact us at Volunteer@projectchickensoup.org to reserve space for you and your group.
We hope that you can join us as we fulfill the mitzvah of cooking and delivering food to those in our community who are impacted by HIV/AIDS. Should your group choose to volunteer for Project Chicken Soup, we hope your experience will be both enjoyable and rewarding.
