Looking for a volunteer food prep opportunity in NYC

I'd like to put in a few dozen to a hundred hours over the next year practicing cooking large amounts of food---far too large for me to buy and eat myself. Is there a place in New York where I could volunteer a few hours each weekend doing scutwork in somebody's kitchen? More specific criteria inside.

I'm asking on AskMe instead of just calling a few soup kitchens because I have a somewhat uncharitable requirement: I don't like large crowds of strangers and I would like some assurance that I would spend most of my time working in the back, not delivering things or serving people. My ideal place would just stick me in a corner with 50 lbs of potatoes to scrub, peel, and chop.
On the bright side, I'm happy to wait until after the holidays when fewer people are looking to volunteer and I can show up almost every week for months on end.
