Are you a Food Network fanatic? Do you love the show "Chopped"?

If you enjoy cooking and possess a sense of adventure, then this is the volunteer opportunity for YOU!

Colorful Cooking Made Easy

Colorful Cooking Made Easy is a partnership of the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department, WSU Extension, United Way of Pierce County and food pantries across Pierce County to provide cooking tips and recipe suggestions for food pantry visitors to help them incorporate the wonderful healthy food options available each week at the food pantry.

Volunteers work with food pantry staff to identify fresh items from the pantry that food pantry visitors might have questions about preparing. The volunteer uses his/her creativity to develop a tasty meal that can be prepared with fresh and staple items from the pantry that participants can then pick up and take home to try! Training and ongoing support is provided.

Sometimes the only barrier between healthy and unhealthy eating is having the knowledge and skills to create healthy meals at home. You can help break down this barrier and empower families and individuals to make healthier choices.
