YSWC Cafeteria Volunteering

2024051024_YSWC Cafeteria Volunteering

Itaewon Global Village Center is looking for volunteers to help out at Yongsan Senior Welfare Center. They need volunteers to help at their in-house kitchen on May 10th and 24th (both Fridays) from 10:30AM to 1:00PM

Yongsan Senior Welfare Center is located in Hannam-dong, and they cater to Korean elderly where the elderly can congregate, participate in various activities, and unwind. The center is also home to a cafeteria where elderly folks have their lunch. They feed about 300-400 Korean grandmas & grandpas. They require assistance with food distribution, kitchen cleanup, and helping elderly people with mobility issues. Your assistance is needed because they lack the manpower to help out at the cafeteria.

Itaewon Global Village Center, together with Korean Food Promotion Institute, is hosting a Korean cooking class on June 5, 2024 (Wed) from 2:00pm to 4:00pm at Hansik Space Eum (near Anguk Station). For this class, we will be learning how to make a simple yet comforting Korean dish: Beef Bulgogi over Rice with Lotus Root.

"Deopbap" (덮밥) comes from 2 different words: "deop" (which means to cover) and "bap" (which means rice) - literally a bowl of rice topped with some sort of topping. Deopbaps have been part of Korean cuisine for decades. While there are exceptions, deopbap generally is a rice bowl type where a little bit of saucy toppings is eaten with a spoonful of rice without being completely mixed like bibimbap. This time, we will put beef bulgogi and lotus root over rice.

FOOD ALLERGY WARNING: (*Please take note of these ingredients before signing-up for the class. Hansik Space Eum WILL NOT make any changes on the recipe.) The ingredients that will be used for this class is as follows: rice, beef, lotus root, pyogo mushroom (golden oak mushroom), onion, sesame seed oil, sesame seed, perilla leaves, soy sauce, sugar, starch syrup, cooking rice wine, green onion, garlic
