CUESA Foodwise Kids volunteer
Foodwise Kids is a free program for elementary school classes that uses the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market as a classroom for empowering the next generation of healthy eaters. Through comparative tastings, exploring the market, and a hands-on cooking lesson we nurture children’s love for fruits and vegetables, teach them to prepare healthy, seasonal foods, and raise their awareness of their role in a sustainable food system.
We’re looking for individuals who love cooking and working with children to assist at our Foodwise Kids classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Volunteers are needed both days generally from 9:30am - 12:30 pm.
Please contact Volunteer Coordinator Tiffany Chung at firstname.lastname@example.org for the next steps in volunteering.
