“Fill your heart……and their plate!”

You will be working at The Smile Food Shop, where your task will be to cook and serve affordable hot meals for all who need it.

Established in 2012, The Smile Food shop was opened to help people by providing cheap lunches for only 2000 VND per meal. The shop is run by a NGO together with passionate locals.

In this program you will help to prepare lunches and serve these meals to a group of around 500 people (elderly, workers, disabled, students and children) who come for cheap, good quality and well prepared meals every day!
