Jobs include washing dishes, cutting vegetables, making soup, pealing shrimp and restocking shelves. This is an industrial working kitchen so young children will not be eligible to attend. Strollers are not permitted. Students must be able to handle knives and follow directions in an active kitchen (not recommended for students under 10 years). Arrive at 9:00am and plan to cook, serve and clean up till 1:00pm. Due to limited space we ask parents to refrain from serving unless we have students who can?t attend at the last minute. You can drop off students or bring a book and stay in the serving area (not in the kitchen). The kitchen is counting on us to serve so please register ONLY if you are committed to attending. Last minute cancelations cause the kitchen to be short handed. Next date: March 20
