Christmas Cook needed! See responsibilities here

Christmas Day Dinner Kitchen Coordinator and Cook

The Kitchen Coordinator / Cook will oversee the cooking of food on Christmas Day with the help of many volunteers. We have great crews of people from the church and community who have helped for many years and know how much of the work is done. Other volunteers manage the dining room, dessert room, dishwashing, and the take out area.

How is the menu prepared?

Turkeys are cooked & deboned prior to Christmas Day. They are heated in roasters.

Stuffing is made prior to Christmas Day. It will need to be cooked. (Half way through – stir and add broth if needed).

Instant mashed potatoes, gravy, and green beans are made on Christmas Day.

Cranberry sauce & gravy are packaged in individual containers for both take-out and dining room

Deserts are handled in the pie room

Drinks and rolls are managed by the dining room volunteers.
