Hey Boston chefs — the Shah Family Foundation and chef Ken Oringer are working to revamp mealtimes at Boston Public Schools, and they need your help. The food services program has recently undergone a few changes, including updates to the equipment (with renovated kitchens) and the menus (they’re serving less processed, less pre-packaged foods through hot & cold serving lines — in a Dig Inn, Sweet Green style). All in all, the 57,000 children that are fed daily through the system have benefited greatly from the improvements made so far, but there’s more to be done.
The organization is looking for local chefs who are interested in volunteering their time to work with the kitchen team at East Boston, Mattapan and Roxbury schools between 9:30am and 1:30pm. As the Mentor Chef, you’ll oversee the prep efforts as well as serving and clean up, offering support, positivity and mentorship to help your team thrive. Eager to learn more?
