Interested in Volunteering?
Cooking Matters’ cooking-based nutrition education classes are powered by volunteers and their passion for the communities we serve. Culinary and nutrition professionals volunteer to share their expertise with the participants, and class assistants support the instruction and the participants' engagement. Each class is built around a hands-on cooking lesson designed to teach the basics of healthy eating, nutrition, cooking, food safety, and food budgeting. We are always looking for new volunteers to help us connect with the community and expand our program to reach more people.
Culinary Instructors teach adults, kids, and teens how to cook healthy, low-cost foods using lesson plans and recipes provided in the Cooking Matters curricula.
Nutrition Instructors teach adults, kids, and teens how to engage critical thinking to make healthy food choices using the lesson plans provided in the Cooking Matters curricula.
Class Assistants help instructors and facilitators with classroom setup, food preparation, food shopping, class activities, and cleanup.
