Healthy World Cafe volunteer updates


As spring begins to peek out here and there (who else is loving this sunshine?!), Healthy World Cafe has a couple of busy months coming up. With that in mind, we wanted to share some of our upcoming volunteer opportunities -- and announce a change to our monthly lunches:

Pea hummus! On the menu for next week.

Healthy World Cafe always wants to respect our volunteers' time -- we love that you've chosen to help out with our mission to provide a locally sourced, healthy meal for anyone, regardless of ability to pay! And, of course, we want you to return and volunteer again.

So, beginning with March, we'll be splitting the Wednesday lunch into two volunteer shifts: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and noon to 3 p.m.

After all, being on your feet for six hours is a long day. With shifts, we aim to give volunteers time for a break to enjoy the food we know you've worked so hard on, and at the same time get an influx of fresh energy to close out the day and help with clean up.

If you can't volunteer for an exact shift, hey, we understand that, too! We love that you're still eager to help out when you can. We would just ask that, after signing up through VolunteerSpot, that you'd send a quick email to sarah.e.chain(at)gmail(dot)com and let us know when to expect you. That makes it easier for us to plan out volunteer duties.

Coming up this week is a private, catered event at Central Market York. We'll have food prep hours Tuesday and Wednesday nights, and then meet up around 3 p.m. Thursday to set up and serve at the event. Here are the details:

-- 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 12 -- Food prep for a private catered event. Meet at First Moravian Church (FMC), 39 N. Duke St., York.
-- 6 to 10 p.m. Wednesday, March 13 -- Food prep for a private catered event. Meet at YorKitchen, Central Market York.
-- 3 to 10:30 p.m. Thursday, March 14 -- Food prep and serving for a private catered event in Central Market York. Meet at YorKitchen. This day will be split into two shifts: 3 to 7 p.m., and 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. If you can't work a specific shift (say, you can be there 5 to 9, but not as early as 3), please email sarah.e.chain(at)gmail(dot)com and let us know when to expect you!
