Help in the kitchen setting up for meal times at our Early Childhood Education Center, a preschool for limited income families serving children ages 3 to 5.

QUALIFICATIONS: Volunteers should be excited about working with 3 to 5-year-olds and teachers, able to inventory and take temperature measurements, and have experience in a kitchen setting. **Bilingual (English and Spanish)- mandatory. Experience working with 3 to 5-year-olds or working or volunteering in a kitchen is a plus!

BENEFITS: Opportunity to interact with young children and support their families and Volunteers of America staff; Volunteers feel good about giving back to their local community by providing high quality and nutritious meals to low income youth.
