VOLUNTEERS KEY TO SOS CAFÉ SUCCESS
For the many volunteers at the SOS Café, it’s an affair of the heart.
They truly enjoy serving the public – while knowing proceeds from the SOS Café help support healthcare in our region. The café is owned and operated by the South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation.
The SOS Café is a comfortable “people place” with lots of seating and an outside patio. We serve specialty coffees, teas, smoothies and juice, along with mouth-watering baked goods, salads, grilled paninis and sandwiches.
Manager Marybeth Zelent and Lisa Barkman, the café’s Food Services Supervisor, are the only paid staff members and work hand-in-hand with more than 50 volunteers who collectively contribute some 5,000 hours of their time per year.
