Angel at our Raw Vegan School by hilloah

One of the tasks I manage as an Enrollment Specialist is signing up our Kitchen Angels. Some people aren’t yet ready to be students, but they would love to be among like minded people helping in a fast paced kitchen. Our kitchen angels come for as little as nine working days or as many as 37. Even our graduates sometimes come back as Kitchen Angels, since they want to find out how a real raw food kitchen is run. One student who wanted to open a café was so glad she participated in the Angel program–she said she had no idea about the amount of work and scheduling it takes to run a raw food kitchen.

A beautiful cafe

Quel cafe!

She said that anyone thinking of opening, or even working in a café, should be an Angel first.

do a variety of work: they mop floors, wash dishes, inventory produce and supplies, put deliveries away (you need to be able to lift 40 to 50 pounds to do this), iron tablecloths, wash and fold towels, and perform other duties as needed. They are right in the thick of things!There is limited food prep required, since Angels have not yet been trained as Living Light Chefs. Those who have gone through our chef training are able to do more food prep. One of the popular perks of the job is that Angels are able to watch demos twice a day with our students.

One of our Angels this year made a beautiful collage to express the joy she felt being an Angel here at Living Light. I heard from many people, both staff and students, that she herself was a joy. They were right!
