Position Address: Lakeside Court: 1022 Greaves Ave., Mississauga ON, L5V 1K5
Location: Mississauga
Accessibility: Fully Accessible Workplace
Ideal for: Individual, Newcomers
Description
This 'role' involves various stages typically needed to prepare and deliver a nutritious meal to up to 8 Lakeside Court residents at a sitting.

The volunteering experience occurs within a modern, up-to-date kitchen, under the supervision of experienced kitchen staff, who lead the prep/cooking/serving.

Goal
AbleLiving Services is a not-for-profit organization operated by Thrive Group. The Thrive Group has been created to bring like minded organizations together to develop a broad range and continuum of services that enable clients to live fulfilling lives and as independently as possible. We believe living well is an art, not a science. Thrive Group makes living life well, on our own terms, a reality.

Our client/resident-centred services would not be possible without a dedicated team of energetic, compassionate volunteers. We currently are in need of 'Community Kitchen Volunteers' to assist with preparation/cooking/serving BREAKFAST or DINNER for our Lakeside Court residents in lower Mississauga (up to 8 adults at a time). An exceptional opportunity to 'network' with (plus promote 'social interaction' as between) residents, besides assisting those who are in need of supported living by providing healthy nutrition, while affording them just enough support so as to have them enjoy a feeling of both belonging and independence!

Benefits
+ Volunteers interested in the food service industry as a possible career choice will benefit
+ Excellent 'networking' opportunity in a 'community-oriented' kitchen/dining facility (bringing residents together/limiting 'social isolation')
+ Personal satisfaction that you will directly contribute to the health of those in need of supported living, in a variety of ways (including nutrition)
+ Secondary school students may earn hours towards their '40 hours' community service graduation requirement

● Prior kitchen/food prep/cooking/serving experience welcome (NOT REQUIRED)
● You are friendly, engaging, ready to be conversational with resident diners (solid oral English, additional language(s) welcome)
● Energetic, able to volunteer in a team setting and relatively fast-paced environment
● Punctual, reliable, respectful of schedules needed to deliver meal programs efficiently and on time
● In order to promote/sustain continuity, your involvement in this 'role' for at least 6 MONTHS is preferred
