Resurrected Bites Cafe Volunteer

Resurrected Bites Cafe Volunteer
Resurrected Bites CIC
Description of the role:

The Resurrected Bites Cafe opened in January 2018 and has been very busy ever since. We are not an ordinary cafe though as we intercept good quality food "waste" from shops and wholesalers and resurrect it into delicious, nutritious meals. The cafe runs on a pay as you feel basis which means that everyone can afford to go out for a meal. We have big communal tables to encourage community and conversation. We also raise money for charity. We have a great team of volunteers who help with collecting the food, prepping and cooking the food and serving.

We serve around 100 people at each cafe and therefore have a lot of food to serve and so we are looking for someone to join our team of volunteers to serve the food and chat with the customers.

Based on the success of the Wednesday cafe at St Mark's, we are opening a new cafe in the town centre at West Park United Reform Church every Saturday 12-2.

Skills and qualities needed for the role:

Do you enjoy team work and working in a busy cafe and kitchen?

We will provide level 2 food hygiene training if you do not already have a current certificate.

We are looking for people who love chatting with people but also don't mind taking orders and serving in a busy cafe and helping with clearing up and washing up when needed.

Practical information:

If you would like to help in the kitchen, we would ideally like help from 9-3. If you would like to help front of house, we would like help from 11-3. The church is in the town centre so accessible from the bus and train.

Training will be provided. No prior experience is necessary.
