acta is a creative charity based in Bedminster, working with isolated and marginalized people from all walks of life. We are looking for a volunteer to cook for our isolated older people's weekly lunch. Our older people come to acta centre for friendly faces, a social meal and a creative session.
Each week we have a team of two preparing food donated by FareShare, one ‘chef’ and one ‘food prep’. The commitment of the chef can be as little as one Tuesday a month and a willingness to complete free Level 2 Food and Hygiene Training through acta.
If you are interested in: creative cooking, preventing food waste, supporting older people and having fun in a wonderful team- this is the role for you. But don’t take it from me, here is some feedback from our current volunteers:
“It’s a bit like ready, steady cook- you find out what we’ve got on the Monday and then come in and cook it on the Tuesday. It can be a bit random but it’s all worth it. The group really appreciate it and it’s nice to do something for them.”
If this is something that would be of interest, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Also- if this doesn't sound like you, but something someone you know might be interested in- do spread the word!
