We are seeking a Food Ambassador to prepare a healthy vegetarian lunch each week in August for 6 families (approximately 6 adults and 14 children) to be eaten as part of Brockwell Greenhouses story-time workshops.

 You will need to:

  • Have a Food Hygiene certificate
  • Be a trained HLP Food Ambassador

 The role will involve:

  • Liaising with Brockwell Greenhouses each week to check what seasonal ingredients are available and to confirm your menu.
  • Keeping in regular communication with staff at HLP each week regarding the project.
  • Preparing a delicious healthy lunch adhering to HLP Food Policy, for approximately 6 families (e.g 6 adults and 14 children) in the Southwyck Kitchen in Brixton each Monday in August (times can be negotiated) to be eaten by families the following day at Brockwell Greenhouses. 
  • Cleaning to a high level in line with COVID Food Safety guidance (additional training provided)

 Fee: Food Ambassador to receive £130 total for all 4 sessions

You will be provided with any additional training required and receive support from the team, and a Volunteer Cook to assist. A small budget of £50 in total can be used for food (in addition to surplus ingredients provided) for the 4 sessions and we can support you in managing this. A free space can be made available for you and your family on the workshops (Tuesdays, 12-2pm) and it would be advantageous but not essential if you can be there to serve the food (in line with COVID food safety guidance).
