Volunteer Opportunities:

Same Cafe is a commercial kitchen, so the majority of their opportunities revolve around kitchen work -washing vegetables, dicing produce, washing dishes, sweeping, cleaning, etc.

Volunteer opportunities are available Monday through Friday between 9:30am and 3:30pm

Volunteers will be asked to sign a volunteer waiver (found here:
https://www.samec before they begin work in the kitchen. They can sign it when they arrive in the cafe on their first day.
