Moveable Feast Lexington has a variety of volunteer opportunities, ensuring that you can find a position that fits both your schedule and interests. In deciding upon a volunteer program, it may be helpful to ask yourself the following two questions: “What do I want to do?” and “When am I available to do it?” Some of our programs operate during regular business hours and some have shifts available evenings and weekends. In addition, some require a regular weekly commitment while other are more flexible.
The kitchen is the heart of Moveable Feast Lexington and operates five days a week. You can volunteer in the mornings, afternoons, or evenings. There is always plenty of slicing and dicing or chopping and peeling. If you are uncomfortable in the kitchen, then you may want to assist with the packaging of the meals for delivery. For cooking, the schedule begins at 11:00 am until 5:00 pm Mondays through Fridays.
The final step in completing the mission of Moveable Feast Lexington is to deliver the meal. This is when you have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with our clients. Maintaining confidentiality is very important. Meals delivery requires training, orientation and a fixed schedule.
Delivery volunteers must use their own vehicles and must have a valid drivers license and insurance. Drivers arrive to pick up food on their assigned days by 5:00 pm and deliver to clients by 7:00 pm. You may also volunteer as a substitute driver to be called on when needed.
