Let us give a helping hand on the upcoming public holiday ( Hari Raya Puasa) as volunteers at Willing Hearts for meal preparation to the needy............... :-)

Volunteer Roles
When you first arrive at Willing Hearts, you may find yourself “lost” in the midst of the hustle and bustle of activity in the kitchen. Do not worry – many first timers tend to feel “lost” so here is a list of various stations, which are available for volunteers to help at –

1. Preparation of ingredients – This would include chopping vegetables, opening bottles and packets of seasoning and sauces, opening cans and packets of food, and just about any other task so the meals can be cooked and delivered on time.

2.Packing of Lunch Boxes – This is a relatively simple task: line lunch boxes, scoop a portion of rice along with the dishes for the day, close lunch box and put it into the delivery basket.

3. Cleaning and Washing – This is often the most overlooked part of the whole operation. Used trays, covers, baskets, cooking utensils, pots and pans all need washing.

4.General Help – There will always be someone who needs a helping hand at the soup kitchen. Someone WILL grab you along the way, asking for help.

If someone tells you that the station that you have approach does not need help, please do not be disheartened – what you can do is to move on to another where help is required. There is never too much help.

Dress Code Imposed by the Organisation :
For your own personal safety and general hygiene purposes, [and to a tiny degree, for our sanity:)]

Please wear closed-toe shoes (i.e. sneakers, tennis shoes, etc.).
No slippers, flip flops and sandals, please

T-shirts must have sleeves and one that you would not mind getting stains on it. No tank tops, please
Bermudas, culottes, tights, etc, allowed as long as they are at or below the knee. No short shorts please.

Just as you would not like to see any stain of hair or any inedible in your food, our beneficiaries do not appreciate them too! These * items will be provided for you in the kitchen.

You MUST put on a *disposable hair net while in the kitchen. Please ensure that hair is tucked neatly into the net like this, otherwise, there is little point in putting on a hair net.
The use of *gloves IS required when handling food, except at the vegetable station.

To prevent stains on on your clothes, *aprons are highly recommended – you may choose to bring your own.

NO jewellery, please! Not even earrings, bracelets and rings. Remember about not liking to find inedible items in our food?

Should you need any other information, please refer to the website or contact me directly. Thanks
