Jamie's Ministry of Food Mobile Kitchen to cook up a storm in Logan

Volunteer with us

Jamie’s Ministry of Food Centres and Mobile kitchens provide community-based, hands-on cooking classes and rely heavily on the generosity of volunteers to support the roll out of programs nationwide. A volunteer for Jamie’s Ministry of Food is an individual who, in the spirit of generosity and for personal or charitable reasons, freely and without expectation contributes their time to assist the program.

Jamie’s Ministry of Food recognises that volunteers are a substantial and integral part of community integration and the commitment and contribution of volunteers is highly valued.

What to expect

Volunteers are involved in a range of tasks assisting Food Trainers in the smooth roll out of classes. This may include handling and preparing ingredients, welcoming participants into the Centre for classes, supporting participants during classes, cleaning and tidying up after classes, putting stock away and restocking shelves with produce, and maintaining cleanliness, order and hygiene in the Centre. Our volunteers are great role models for students and also contribute their wonderful community contacts so we can reach more people in need.
