The Agape Community Kitchen is always looking for new adult volunteers to assist behind the scenes. Here are some ways members of PCW or adults and groups from other churches in the Westfield area can help.
Weekly Coordinator SEARCH! Ever wonder how we manage to serve approximately 150-200 people each Wednesday at Agape? It’s thanks to our youth & adult volunteers and…the WEEKLY COORDINATORS (WC)! WC’s plan the week’s meal, put together the shopping list, send out weekly reminders to the volunteers on the schedule and then lead onsite in the kitchen. Sounds like a lot, but it is simple and rewarding and you’ll have a seasoned WC help you get started! You won’t be left alone!
Join an Existing Meal Team or Start a New Team – Currently, Agape serves eight different meals and four different desserts which are rotated each week. Our meal and dessert teams cook in their homes and deliver the food to the Westfield Kitchen.
Westfield Kitchen Cook – Every Wednesday two or three adult volunteers finish preparing the meals cooked by our meal teams. They arrive between 12:30pm-1:00 p.m. and finish by 2:30pm-3:00pm each Wednesday.
Be a Shopper – Shoppers pick up pre-ordered groceries and supplies from Restaurant Depot in Union and deliver those items to The Presbyterian Church of Westfield on Wednesday morning.
Laundry – Our laundry volunteers pick up any dirty aprons and dishrags brought home from Elizabeth. The laundry is picked up from PCW, washed and returned to PCW anytime before the following Wednesday.
Write Grants Proposals – The Grant Committee develops grant projects, writes proposals and targets businesses for donations of services or merchandise to the mission.
