Kitchen Safety & Dress Code
Volunteer safety is a priority at MANNA. For your own safety and for the health of MANNA clients, you are required to follow the guidelines outlined below to volunteer in the MANNA kitchen. We strive to provide all volunteers with a safe and enjoyable experience.
Kitchen Safety and Dress Code:
- Volunteers must be at least 14 years old
- All volunteers under the age of 18 must have completed a minor consent form to be in the MANNA kitchen
Proper sanitary practices are a must:
- Hands must be washed with soap and warm water:
- before starting a shift
- between tasks or projects
- after breaks or leaving the kitchen
- after using the restroom
- Aprons and gloves must be replaced after breaks or using the restroom.
The Department of Health requires a dress code for MANNA’s kitchen and it is enforced year round (including Summer). It is important that all volunteers follow this code for their own safety and for the health of our clients:
- No sleeveless shirts or tank tops
- Long pants only (no shorts or skirts)
- Close-toed flat shoes only (no open-toed shoes or sandals; no high heels)
- Hat and/or head covering is required (hairnets are provided)
- Disposable aprons and gloves are provided.
