PART-TIME MOBILE SOUP KITCHEN VAN DRIVER Grand Central Food Program Coalition for the Homeless, NYC
Since homeless men and women who live rough on city streets are the most isolated and hardest to reach, they are at tremendous risk of malnutrition. The Coalition's Grand Central Food Program, a mobile soup kitchen that stops at 31 sites throughout Manhattan and the Bronx every night of the year, meets this challenge head on. Unlike a traditional soup kitchen, our team of staff and volunteers brings the food to where street homeless people live - even amidst the harshest weather, black-outs, and other obstacles. For many homeless New Yorkers, this nightly meal is their only meal of the day. Each night, a fleet of vans delivers life-saving meals of hearty stew, bread, fresh fruit, and juice or milk to approximately 1,000 people.
The GCFP Part-Time Mobile Soup Kitchen Van Driver works with the GCFP Program Assistant to ensure that the GCFP vehicle is in good working order, and is responsible for ensuring timely delivery of meals. As with other members of the GCFP program team, the driver collaborates with volunteers to assist in distribution of meals to clients at the site. The GCFP Part-Time Mobile Soup Kitchen Van Driver performs job duties consistent with the mission and goals of the Coalition for the Homeless and the terms of the HPNAP agreement with the New York State Department of Health.
A High School degree or GED is required. Valid NYS driver’s license with no moving vehicle violations REQUIRED. Two years of related experience in driving experience in a human services setting, strongly desired.
*Ability to work 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM schedule Monday – Friday. The Part-Time Driver may be required from time-to-time to provide coverage in the vent of a volunteer driver's absence. Ability to lift up to 80 pounds.
SALARY: $12.00 per hour (This is a part-time opportunity 15-20 hours per week)
