How to Get Started

The Kitchen offers a wide variety of programs, and because of that we have a variety of volunteer opportunities to suit a wide range of skills, interests and abilities.

Whether you are interested in sharing your cooking skills, becoming part of our pantry program team, or helping to drive our organization forward as one of our committee members, we have a fun and rewarding volunteer opportunity that will suit your time availability, skills and interests.

Your first step is to reach out by phone or email! Please contact us at

From there, we will schedule a brief call or zoom meeting together to get to know each other as bit more and explore current volunteer opportunities.

Things to consider:

  • What are your interests?
  • What skills, volunteer and work experience do you have?
  • What is your availability and ideal time commitment?
  • What excites you about our organization and where would you like to dedicate your time?

During our call or zoom meeting together, we can register you as a member of the Shelbourne Community Kitchen, fill out volunteer paperwork and decide on a volunteer position that is right for you.
