At Metro Caring, we're meeting people's immediate food needs while sustainably addressing the root cause of hunger: poverty. We provide nutritious groceries to our hungry neighbors, and also offer comprehensive, wrap-around anti-hunger programming so that families can break the cycle of poverty.
Metro Caring is a welcoming, dignified, health-focused organization, open to everyone in the Denver metro area. Inside our facility, our staff and volunteers provide a respectful and equitable experience to anyone who walks through our doors.
We are currently recruiting for volunteers who are passionate about food, nutrition, and/or education! Nutrition Educators volunteer in two roles:
- Point-Of-Sale Volunteer: this position involves cooking a very simple recipe using items that are in abundance or items that are available and somewhat unfamiliar. Volunteers hand out their samples directly in the market.
- Healthy Tasting/Food for Thought Volunteer: this is a dual role. Volunteers work with a partner to do a cooking demonstration using ingredients in the market while engaging participants in an evidence-based nutrition education game that is provided.
We'll work with your schedule.
