Healthy Baking and Cooking Instructor Needed

Save to Favorites


As part of all of our programs, we teach healthy habits for overall wellness. We are seeking volunteers to teach healthy baking and cooking classes. The skills we are trying to instill in participants are ways to avoid the use of unhealthy fats and carbohydrates, and to utilize farm-to-table organic fresh fruits and vegetables as often as possible. We would want to avoid the use of butter, sugar, and other ingredients.

On-site baking and cooking classes would incorporate the use of our own pears, which are grown on site at our Foundation Center. We would love to have a volunteer who could teach healthy Pear Tart baking classes or healthy Pear Salad and Smoothie classes, for example. The volunteer would be welcome to share any ideas that we could use the on-site freshly grown pears for. Ideas such as canning pears or otherwise preserving pears would also be possibilities for fun educational classes. As part of the classes, participants would get to take photos in front of our large pear tree on the front lawn. The volunteer would be asked to pick the pears off the pear tree for use during the class.

Aside from cooking with the use of pears, we also welcome other healthy cooking teachers to volunteer as well! We welcome on site volunteer cooking teachers or Zoom cooking teachers.
