Safta's Kitchen - Meal Kit Delivery Volunteer

5920 1a St SW, Calgary, AB, T2H 0G3 [map]
1-3 hours / monthly
3 months term
Safta's (meaning grandmother's in Hebrew) Kitchen is a program centered on building connections through food and nourishing the soul through relationships. The aim is to decrease social isolation through active intergenerational volunteerism and improving quality of life through the sharing of stories and food.  

While we had planned to cook together in community kitchens, COVID-19 has other plans for us! We will be gathering beloved recipes from seniors and delivering meal kits to other seniors who wish to recreate the meal! 

Meal Kit Delivery Volunteers will pick up the meal kits from our office and deliver to seniors' homes. The meal kit will include the recipe, ingredients, a story from the senior who provided the recipe, local resources for seniors, and other fun items such as letters from Calgary's youth.
Certification or Education Required
We ask that volunteers:
