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 and exploring the market, 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. We supply all the teaching materials and will train you to support our classes.

Please contact Volunteer Coordinator Damaris Bonner at damaris@foodwise.org for the next steps in volunteering.
