We are always looking for volunteers! You can help out in the kitchen or drive one of our many routes!
Patti Kallery recently joined our team as our Program Coordinator. She has volunteered in the TLC MoW office and kitchen for approximately 7 years, during which time she was completing her second bachelor’s degree in Human Nutrition and Metabolism from Metro State. After graduating from MSUD in 2013, Patti joined Children’s Hospital Colorado, as a Room Service Coordinator, then later teamed up with the Clinical Nutrition Staff as a Registered Dietetic Technician, specializing in Medical Nutrition Therapy in the pediatric population. Currently, she is completing her Master’s in Human Nutrition with an emphasis in Clinical Nutrition, and is anticipating an August graduation from The University of Alabama – Tuscaloosa. Patti is married to her high school sweetheart, has two grown children and two canine kiddos. In her free time, she enjoys Pilates, golf, and travel.
Jason Jones is our new Chef and Kitchen Manager. He is a Cordon Bleu-trained chef and has worked in Los Angeles, Seattle, New York City, Austin and Houston, where he’s from. He has taught the culinary arts, designed menus and designed kitchen layouts. He’s even cooked for bigwigs like George Bush, Dick Cheney and the guy Cheney accidentally shot, Harry Whittington. He works seasonally as a volunteer sit-ski instructor for disabled adults and children through the National Sports Center for the Disabled and is a member of the Board of Directors for Redline Contemporary Art Center.
Debbie Peters, Cook, has worked in the kitchen since 2005. With no prior experience in the food industry, Debbie started out as a general helper, taking every opportunity to learn how to cook large quantities and manage all aspects of the kitchen as she rose to her current position. She loves working side by side with the kitchen volunteers and can’t imagine how we could manage without them. When she’s not busy in our kitchen, Debbie can be found working in her garden or hanging out with her two granddaughters, Kaley and Riely.
Brian Harvey, Cook.
Tara McManus, Kitchen Assistant.
