Do you enjoy cooking? Are you looking for a way to share your love of cooking and food with others? Volunteer as a cooking class instructor at one of SAHA’s senior affordable housing sites in Berkeley or Oakland! An instructor is needed to share recipes with senior residents and to demonstrate and aid them in preparing delicious and healthy meals that they can later prepare on their own. Volunteers will need to attend a training on nutrition to go over some fundamentals for teaching the class.
