REVIVE AND THRIVE PROJECT

Image_202010130600

We support individuals and their families dealing with serious illness with free, delivered, and nutrient-rich meals along with a community of nurturing support. We involve young people as volunteer chefs who can experience the transforming power of serving and nurturing those in need while developing cooking and healthy eating skills. Educating the broader community about the connections between healthy food & healing is at the heart of what we do.

Teenagers often make their own food choices yet face several barriers in achieving healthy food habits. Teens who are involved with cooking and nutritional education discover that healthy food can be nourishing, tasty and easy to prepare, while also learning about the powerful relationship between food and health. The Revive and Thrive model of service elevates teens from learners to nurturing leaders; a position that provides leadership lessons and esteem building experiences that can benefit all aspects of their life.

You’ll have the opportunity to have fun cooking with other teens while helping people fighting severe illness. With the guidance of adult mentor chefs you’ll learn to prepare, cook, and package meals.

No experience is necessary to join our Teen Chef program. We request a minimum of a 12-week volunteer commitment.

Teen Volunteering takes place each Wednesday from 3:30 to 6:30pm.

We ask that our teens are at least in 8th grade and between the ages of 14 and 19.
