Volunteer with Cooking Matters!

Share Our Strength’s Cooking Matters teaches families at risk of hunger that healthy cooking can be delicious, enjoyable - and most important - affordable. Through hands-on classes taught by volunteer culinary and nutrition experts, course participants learn how to select nutritious and low-cost ingredients and prepare them in ways that provide the best nourishment possible to their families. In short, they learn how to make the most of what they’ve got.
