What do our volunteers do?
Volunteers help with a wide range of kitchen activities from food prep and coordination of group activities, to cleaning, packaging, setting up and food distribution. Depending on the day, the tasks can vary, however usually it's structured around an event at OBK. There are also regular volunteer events for those who are able to offer more consistent help.
If you’re 18 years or older, your Working with Children’s Check (WWCC) must be up to date in order to volunteer.

Volunteering feels good.
Volunteering at OBK was fun, easy and I felt like I was really making a difference.
Everyone in the kitchen was very welcoming and created a warm and fun environment, and there was lots to do from the first hour I got there. The process to sign up online is straightforward and easy, and you can see which days the kitchen needs help which means your time is always well spent.
Hope to see you again soon and best of luck till then, sounds like you're very busy at the moment!
