Volunteer page 1“I love volunteering for Green Plate Special! GPS really values its volunteers, we are treated with respect and I love the way we are literally included at the table for the communal meal. Whether it’s taking care of the chickens, teaching youth in the garden or the kitchen, every moment is helping to make a difference.”

Weekend Chicken Care - Beginning in May

Do you love caring for chickens? Or would you like to learn how to  care for chickens?

We keep a small flock of chickens at Green Plate Special as part of our youth programs – youth love to watch and feed the chickens, delight in finding eggs and chickens are excellent educators, too! And we use the eggs in the kitchen!

We have new chicks in the coop and will have opportunities to care for them starting in May.

  • Saturday, Sunday, and holiday support

  • In the morning: let chickens out, feed them, and hang out with them a little - between 8 & 9AM

  • In the evening: return to put chickens back in coop - at dusk (5-7PM)

Open to all volunteers (age 18 and up) - a one hour chicken care training is provided prior to your first volunteer date.

Sign up once a month or as often as you like.

If you have questions about chicken care, please contact us at volunteer@greenplatespecial.org.
