Still Searching for Taste Volunteers…

cropped-tot_logo_stacked_2014_215x72Four days left and we are still looking for 54 volunteers from PS 150! Please consider signing up if you haven’t already done so. Our most pressing needs are the Restaurant shifts – and these are probably the most fun jobs! We need one volunteer per restaurant per shift and your main responsibility is to punch patrons’ tickets. At the same time, you get to hang out with a few chefs and watch as they prepare their dishes. Our volunteers always come away having had a great time, and some even try to work with the same restaurant year after year.

Other open jobs include set-up and break down (great if you can only help out early or late in the day), the VIP tent, ticketing, and face painting in the Kids’ Zone. We are thrilled that PS 150 parent Judy Chin will be leading the face painting crew. Judy is a professional make-up artist who works on major motion pictures and has won awards for films including Black Swan and Frida.

Again, the iVolunteer link is here. Please help make Taste a success again this year!
