Sign up to volunteer for a Cooking Matters class in our 7 county service area!

Inter-Faith Food Shuttle partners with community organizations that serve low-income families to offer six-week Cooking Matters courses to adults, kids, teens, and families. Each course is team-taught by a volunteer chef, nutrition educator, and two classroom assistants. Throughout the six-week course volunteers and participants cover meal preparation, grocery shopping, food budgeting and nutrition.

TRAINING IS REQUIRED FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY.

During the online volunteer training ("Train the Trainer"), new volunteers will learn how to become Cooking Matters Nutrition Instructors, Culinary Instructors, and Classroom Assistants!

Once you take the course you will be able to sign up to volunteer for Cooking Matters courses! You can complete the training here: https://www.foodshuttle.org/che-volunteer-training

"I volunteered as a helper with Cooking Matters and I liked volunteering with a "team" of 4 other individuals. It was great to have a hands-on opportunity to interact with the participants and feel like it was making a difference."
