Yes! If you’re looking for something fun and different to do this summer- come volunteer in the 21 Acres kitchen! Learn about sustainable and energy saving practices, how to cook healthy meals with local and seasonal foods, and the environmentally conscious way to wash dishes; all while helping out your community and a great cause! And, if you’re fairly new to the workforce, like me, and looking for some experience, volunteering at 21 Acres looks great on a resume!
Over the years, I’ve volunteered to help out in other capacities at 21 Acres, but this summer was the first time that I have worked in the 21 Acres kitchen. While I’ve enjoyed my other experiences at 21 Acres, being in the kitchen helping wash dishes, prepare food, and interacting with the fantastic and friendly kitchen staff has been the most fun!
When volunteering in the kitchen, you never know what you’ll be doing. While there is a good deal of dishwashing to be done, I often find myself getting to help with other, more entertaining tasks like making delicious desert skewers, using the pasta machine to make fresh spaghetti or fettuccini noodles, drying herbs, rolling out dough for delicious flat bread or pizza crust, and being the unofficial taste tester for 21 Acres talented chefs! And don’t be surprised if you hear music playing in the background!
So, if you like laughter, food, and spending time with great people who have a lot of knowledge about cooking and healthy living then 21 Acres is the place for you!
