We always love a good love story at Miriam’s Kitchen. In fact, four couples have actually met right here in our kitchen! But as of today, Miriam’s Kitchen is taking a new role in this whole lovebusiness.
Volunteer Sous Chef Kaiti has been part of the Miriam’s Kitchen volunteer family for the past 4 years. You’ll often find Kaiti in our kitchen on Monday mornings wearing her white sous chef coat making sure our kitchen is in order and our homeless guests are served a delicious, healthy breakfast.
For many of us, this Father’s Day weekend is a time to show our gratitude for the wonderful role models our fathers (and father figures) have been for us.
In talking with some of the dads who are a special part of Miriam’s Kitchen, we’ve found that the best gift a dad can receive is something quite simple: time with their loved ones.
On Saturday, we're hosting our annual Volunteer Appreciation BBQ and while we've been collecting RSVPs (get yours in today by emailing Ashley), we've also been getting some interesting stories about what our volunteers have been up to lately.
Some are so interesting that we can't help but share them. Here are a few of our favorites:
The 3rd week in April is National Volunteer Appreciation Week and we can't wait to celebrate the important volunteer work you do for our community.
We hope you'll join us for at least one of the fun events we're planning to thank you for your invaluable contributions to Miriam's Kitchen (full list of awesomeness here).
But in case you can't, we've compiled 5 of the reasons we think you're one of the greatest volunteers around:
Chocolate. Flowers. Sappy cards. These are the usual suspects when trying to woo someone.
But did you ever think that hairnets, committee meetings and little bottles of shampoo could set the stage for romance?
Geoff first came to Miriam’s Kitchen as a breakfast sous chef, racing around the kitchen to ensure meals were prepared on time and to perfection for our homeless guests.
Kristi spent her time at “the front of the house” handing out much needed toiletries and chatting with guests who joined us for breakfast.
