Preparing food and serving customers in a bustling catering environment
North Devon Hospice has two cafes. The Terrace Cafe is at the hospice and is the hub of the building, where patients, volunteers, family members, staff and visitors can enjoy a cuppa or a meal. We also run Sheppard's Cafe on Holland Walk in Barnstaple, where all the proceeds go to the hospice. You could have the opportunity to help us in either location.
Volunteers are an important part of the smooth running of both cafés, ensuring customers have delicious food in a welcoming and friendly environment. The volunteers help with taking orders, manning the till, preparing ingredients and providing great customer service.
The kitchen team also provide home cooked meals for those on the Bedded Unit. Volunteers will liaise with patients and the kitchen team to ensure they have the nutritious meal they would like.
