Volunteer

Volunteers are the heart and soul of CGK.  Thank you for your willingness to serve others. Together, we can end food insecurity for our neighbors in need.

POLICY FOR VOLUNTEER MINORS

Minors (17 years of age and younger) who volunteer with the Community Garden Kitchen, in the facility or garden area, must always be in the presence of a parent or supervisor. If the minor is in a volunteer group, such as a scout troop, church group, etc., the group must be accompanied and supervised by a parent, or authorized supervisor.  Children must be 12 years old to volunteer.

The Child and Youth Protection Policy Statement also details actions that must be taken to assure appropriate use and protection of minors who act in a volunteer role at the Community Garden Kitchen.  To view this policy please click here: CGK Child & Youth Protection Policy
