The Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre exists to support and empower women and children living in extreme poverty in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. High levels of violence, homelessness, addictions and poverty characterize this community where women and children are particularly vulnerable to exploitation, injustice and injury. Through the Drop-In Centre and Emergency Night Shelter, we provide practical support to over 500 women and children daily to survive the conditions of ill health and violence that surround them.
The Kitchen Cook is primarily responsible for providing a nutritious meal within a busy and chaotic drop-in centre and/or emergency night shelter including meal planning and preparation, serving, cleaning and maintenance, customer service skills, stock taking and ordering. She will participate in supporting a relevant training program for Centre Volunteers in all aspects of the kitchen.
Reporting directly to the Kitchen Services Supervisor, she will integrate a community-based approach into the DEWC as the primary principle to guide this position with the goal of engaging centre volunteers in the functioning and responsibility of the kitchen
