Travel and make a difference through a food outreach program in Greece. As part of this exciting opportunity, you’ll play a crucial role in providing meals each day to residents of nursing homes, public schools and special needs care centers. Each center prepares and distributes the meals to individuals of varying backgrounds.
You are best suited to this program if you have some experience in food preparation, have the ability to work hard and are looking to make a difference in the lives of those in need. Some of your tasks will include:
This program is extremely important to the local community and supports the local public school kitchens as well as elderly nursing homes. By volunteering on this program, you are helping to lighten the load on each of the teachers and encouraging this program to grow.
The first day of your volunteer placement you will undertake an orientation run by the local team. You'll be introduced to the program, rules, health and safety, what to do and don't do, basic Greek lesson, cultural knowledge, and a short city tour.
After your orientation, you'll be assigned to either a morning or afternoon shift which lasts the duration of 3-5 hours. A typical morning schedule would look like:
7:30 am - Breakfast
8:30 am - Travel to the placement and begin work.
1:30 pm - Work ends at the placement. Enjoy lunch at the volunteer apartment.
2:30 pm - Feel free to use this afternoon as you wish. Enjoy sightseeing, shopping, or take Greek language lessons.
8:30 pm - Dinner and remainder of evening free.
