The Girls Rock! DC Team

Needed: Volunteer Food Coordinator(s)

Fuel the movement! Girls Rock! DC is seeking one to two volunteer food coordinators to solicit and organize food and food donations prior to our 2 weeks of camp in July, and to run food operations during the 2 weeks of camp. This is an extremely important volunteer position, without which camp cannot happen. Camp is July 7-19.

About the volunteer job: Roles prior to camp include soliciting donations from businesses and from individuals willing to provide meals. It will also be helpful if you were able to attend a couple of leadership meeting prior to camp. During camp week you will organize helpers in assembling and distributing camper lunches, organizing camper snacks, and putting out donated food and coffee for the volunteers.There will be a need for a small amount of organizational and record keeping work to wrap up the camp season.

Who should apply: This position is open to all genders. While it is helpful to have been at camp before, it is not at all necessary. This is a great way for a non-musician to get involved, as well as an ideal position for those who prefer not to work directly with children. A car is a plus but one may also be available for borrowing if needed.

Time commitment: Commitment is from now through camp (July 7-19) and its breakdown in July. Between now and July’s camp, you can expect to spend about an hour per week prepping for camp meals and lining up donations. The 2-3 days before camp will involve several hours of buying supplies and setting up your kitchen kingdom for the 2 weeks. At least one coordinator needs to be on site at all times during camp weeks (9-5). Camp breakdown occurs on July 20, but you may want to spent a couple of hours after that time organizing your records and supplies. After that, year-round involvement is possible.There is the option for joining the leadership team if you’re interested.

Resources for you: You have at your disposal excellent and thorough files from the previous coordinator, who was extremely organized. The school may also provide some food, and some supplies remain from last year. You’ll be given a budget based on past spending and a credit card to use at Costco etc. A leadership team member with previous food experience will partner with you and be available to answer any questions.
