  • 10 people are interested

We’re bringing the culinary classroom to the curbside in the communities that we serve. The Mobile Teaching Kitchen arrives on-site at schools, farmers’ markets and community events with tables, cooking equipment, speakers and more to create a hands-on cooking demonstration experience. All MTK visits take place within the Greater Philadelphia Region.

Volunteers are asked to assist with:

  • Setting up tables & roll out plastic tablecloths
  • Setting up the hands-on activities (cut gloves, cooking tools, mixing bowls, colored mats)
  • Distributing hands-on ingredient(s)
  • Supporting hands-on participants
  • Distributing recipe cards
  • Distributing samples and utensils
  • Distributing surveys, answer questions, and collect completed surveys
  • Cleaning in between and during demonstrations
  • Resetting hands-on workstations
  • Assisting Educator with equipment clean up and break down


Specific schedules vary visit to visit, but all of our MTK opportunities:

  • Run throughout the entire week at various times, all year long!
  • Accommodate groups of 20-30 adults and/or youth

Volunteers are expected to have an upbeat personality, passion and willingness to be hands-on, and have a basic knowledge of food, cooking equipment, and techniques.

If you are interested in becoming a Mobile Teaching Kitchen Volunteer, please email Ridhdhi Parmar at for more information of our Volunteer on-boarding process.
