Cooking and Serving Meals to Park Place School- Breakfast Shift

For volunteering, you will arrive at Mercy Chef's Community Kitchen in Portsmouth, VA. The kitchen building is located behind the main building. You can access it by walking up the brick driveway.

When you arrive, you will check in with the kitchen team member who will take your temperature. You'll need to fill out a Mercy Chefs' volunteer registration form either when you arrive or you can fill it out online ahead of time. 

After check in, you will participate in preparing the food for Park Place School. Once the food is ready, you'll travel to the school in your own vehicle, 422 Shirley Ave, Norfolk, VA, to help serve the meals. Once the meals are served and clean-up is completed, you'll be done for the day! We have both lunch (separate opportunity) and breakfast shifts. 

Since we will be in a kitchen and it is a foodservice environment, you'll need to wear closed toed shoes and any long hair will need to be tied up. We will provide you with a Mercy Chefs' volunteer T-shirt. Consider that we will be preparing food, so wear clothes that you don't mind if they get a little dirty. 

Background Information about Park Place School: 

Park Place School is small school located in Norfolk, VA. The mission of Park Place School, in collaboration with community partners, is to build strong academic and spiritual foundations in students to prepare them for success.

A few years ago, they lost their building and they are now based in the Jewish Community Center in the Ghent area of Norfolk. Their new space has no kitchen, so Mercy Chefs adopted them and this will be the third year of school foodservice!
