St. Luke's is a registered charity based in Auchmuty, Glenrothes which runs the exciting new community project (activity), known as Peace 'n' Jam (PNJ) and funded by the National Lottery Community Fund. The funding has allowed for the renovation of its building to establish a community kitchen and social hub - improved, inclusive spaces (with free WIFI) - for the use of the community, groups, and individuals to deliver a range of projects, events, and skills training. Over the next three years, PNJ would like to use the power of food to bring people together.
St Luke's will do this by providing a variety of different ways for food to be a part of the community. It currently works to establish a community larder/pantry & community fridge, and to offer a weekly community meal and gatherings. The Community Cook/Co-ordinator will join at the beginning of the Community Kitchen phase and will have a key role in starting up, coordinating, and growing St Luke's cooking and sharing of food with people from the community and beyond. You will take responsibility for the running of our production/community kitchen ensuring food safety systems, stock control, equipment, kitchen use, and kitchen hire are maintained to a high standard. You will undertake a variety of duties and have the opportunity to share your thoughts and ideas about the community activities we plan and run which will then evolve with the needs of the community.
