- and click here for other Hackney volunteering ideas!
Our volunteers form a large, happy and diverse community that also meets socially throughout the year. We have all made new friends and at every volunteering opportunity we find people remember each other and have a great rapport. Everyone bring different talents to the group - some are good cooks, some good administrators or IT experts, some great with people, not to mention the most appreciated washer-uppers.
"BAGS OF TASTE" FOOD POVERTY COURSES
Food poverty is both an economic and a social issue. Nowadays many people on a budget find that it is cheaper to eat ready meals and takeaways than cook for themselves, leading to unhealthy eating habits. We have analysed the issues behind this and have developed effective ways of encouraging behaviour change. We are running a series of courses to address this, through teaching them to cook and shop on a tight budget (all our recipes cost less than £1 a portion) and producing food that is more tasty than the shop bought alternatives.
We need volunteers to help with preparation for the courses (usually weekday evenings) and to help deliver the courses (usually a weekday morning). If you feel you can help with either of these, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
It doesn't need to be a regular commitment, but we think you'll find it really rewarding.
WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR SUPPERCLUB VOLUNTEERS
We are run entirely by volunteers. If you feel you could contribute anything from administration to washing up, we'd be glad to hear from you! Please get in touch on email@example.com
WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR GUEST CHEFS
We occasionally feature guest chefs - We typically get about 4 a year and they always go down well. Sometimes they came first as guests to the supperclub, sometimes even the parents of guests! Others just came along and volunteered to start with to see what it involves.
Here's an example of a MumChef night: Ghana Night
We have also had external contributions for Vegan, Spanish, Jewish and Mexican, as well as Korean - here are some photos from that night
