KITCHEN ASSISTANT

Tucson Meet Yourself is known for food, and the Cultural Kitchen is a wonderful example of why this is true. The Kitchen brings together community cooks, and a few chefs, to demonstrate and offer sample dishes that are meaningful to them, as well as connected to our region. It is not an iron chef space but a well-organized, less formal venue that invites festival attendees to learn and taste uncommon foods firsthand. Volunteers are needed to help engage the audience to come into the tent, assuring the cooking area is clean and tidy, preparing sample plates and serving them. This is a great opportunity for those with a culinary passion as you will also connect with the cooks and eat great food! You are likely to be standing for most of the shift.
