Join our legendary yakisoba army!

During December Nights, the Japanese Friendship Garden entrance plaza turns into a pop-up restaurant, virtually run by our volunteers. Between our famed yakisoba chefs, assembly crew, cashiers, drinks handlers and more, we wow the crowds with quick service and delicious foods. It's a thrilling way to knock out community service hours and make some new friends in the process!

Are you ready to join our team of volunteers in running an exciting, fast-paced yakisoba shop? Sign up below! 

Note for groups: all group members should sign up individually. This is to ensure all group members receive all necessary information.
