p:ear is hiring a Kitchen Coordinator

***Hired!***
As a central member of the p:ear team, the Kitchen Coordinator will work collaboratively with leadership and program staff to offer 2 healthy, nutritious meals per day. p:ear’s food program is the hub for shared meals that provide homeless young people with the opportunity to create and share food with other students, staff and volunteers and instills a sense of belonging while providing an experience for them to know they are cared for, appreciated, and worthy of being nurtured.

 

It was an incredible night of support, raising $495,000 for our vital programs for our community’s homeless youth! Your belief in the futures of these valuable but vulnerable young folk is what makes our work possible. As the number of young people who walk through our doors continues to grow rapidly, your investment is vital to help instill safety, nourishment and learning opportunities.

You made our event so successful, and you looked great doing it! Here’s the facebook pix and here’s the photobooth pix!

Special thanks go to Kim Stafford, Oregon Poet Laureate, for reading his beautiful poem, “Forage,” and to Bryan Steelman of Por Que No, for being the recipient of the 2019 Community Partnership Award. We are so grateful!
