I started volunteering when I retired. I’m usually here twice a week for the morning shift. Usually I operate a tilt skillet and in that we make casseroles that will feed anywhere from 600-900 meals at a time. We volunteers might crank out up to 4,000 meals per day.
I was looking for a volunteer opportunity with an organization that was socially responsible. I was raised in the restaurant business, and I never wanted to do that as I saw my dad putting in a hundred hours a week. That being said, volunteering in a kitchen is a bit like coming home. Since 2004, I have amassed about 4,200 volunteer hours with Second Helpings.
