Simple duties include:
New Manna Pentecostal Soup Kitchen volunteers benefit in a variety of ways from their experiences. Because you are using your talents to help other people in need, the immediate benefit of your work is seeing people enjoy a meal that you helped prepare. Yet, more than completing a good work or satisfying an obligation, we invite our volunteers to see themselves as part of a larger community found only in places like New Manna Pentecostal Soup Kitchen. Here, friendships naturally develop among volunteers, and a cohesive community emerges. That is why we, at New Manna Pentecostal Soup Kitchen, encourage our volunteers, when comfortable, to extend themselves to our guests. We intend to feed more than only the body; we intend to feed the soul. When inclined, feel free to begin a conversation with our Guests. Verbal acknowledgements, handshakes, hugs and other expressions of friendship have a transformation affect on Guest and volunteer as well as our world.
Volunteers are mostly needed to help in the New Manna Pentecostal Soup Kitchen with:
-Serving the noonday hot meal
-Cleaning up and washing dishes
Additional volunteers are needed for non-kitchen work in other programs of the larger New Manna Pentecostal Association with:
-Sorting and organizing canned goods at the Food Pantry
-Helping with picking up food
-Helping with unloading food from food truck
Doing the work of the New Manna Pentecostal Soup Kitchen is important, but just as important are the contributions volunteers make to the fellowship and community of the kitchen’s staff, volunteers, and guests.
A Volunteer needs to:
-Treat guests and anyone who enters the kitchen with dignity and respect.
-Strive to be a valued member of the kitchen’s community who feels concern for the welfare of all.
-Be friendly, organized, and productive while doing assigned tasks.
Most tasks are simple and do not require much training.
If you are a new volunteer:
-Report to cook Bishop Job or Pastor Teresa the volunteer in charge for the day.
-Follow the instructions and advice our veteran volunteers offer, on-the-job.
