Volunteer Schedule :
Ongoing Volunteers
education / literacy
food / hunger
health / healthcare
If youíve worked in the culinary industry and/or attended culinary school, are proficient in knife skills, basic cooking techniques, kitchen safety/sanitation, and basic ingredient substitutions, you may be a good fit! You should be able to successfully and comfortably teach basic cooking skills and techniques to our participants. If youíre a current culinary student or avid home cook, youíre welcome to volunteer; however, you may find that volunteering as the course assistant before taking the lead instructor role may be beneficial.
There is no specific training or experience needed to be a successful course assistant. If you have an interest in food, nutrition, healthy living, and ending childhood hunger but donít want to jump into the lead instructor role, being a course assistant may be the right role for you! The course assistant provides support to the lead instructors, such as an extra pair of hands during class or helping with set-up and clean-up. The assistant is not expected to provide cooking or nutrition information, but this role can also provide an aspiring culinary or nutrition instructor with the opportunity to experience the 6-week course before determining if the lead instructor role would be suitable.
Cooking Matters
Cooking Matters is an initiative of the No Kid Hungry campaign, which works to end childhood hunger in America.
