This is a very fulfilling volunteer opportunity. Not only are we contributing to hunger alleviation, which is very fulfilling, but the self-satisfaction of planting and harvesting produce and seeing the fruits of your own labor is also very rewarding.

Great stuff going on from so many different approaches.

I worked with Kate as my leader, and enjoyed participating more than I imagined. These classes really give you an opportunity to educate willing participants in the areas of cooking and nutrition. They look up to you for guidance and it becomes a really humbling experience for anyone who volunteers. Plus, you get hands on experience with a chef and are able to cook dishes that are really good and budget friendly.
