Cooking Matters Volunteer Roles

Cooking Matters is a cooking-based nutrition education course designed to teach low-income families how to prepare healthy, tasty meals on a limited budget. Chefs and nutrition educators volunteer their time and expertise to lead hands-on courses that show adults, teens, and kids how to purchase and prepare nutritious foods in healthy safe, and tasty ways.  This can mean the difference between feeding families for just one night and making sure they have the knowledge, skills, and resources to prepare healthy meals for a lifetime.

Time Commitment:

  • At least 1 hour for training and orientation to Cooking Matters.
  • At least 4 hours per week for lesson preparation, travel time, class time, set-up and clean-up.
  • Must commit to all six weeks of the course!


  • Volunteers are needed to assist in the classrooms by:
  • Managing class materials including food
  • Supporting the volunteer instructors
  • Helping with set up and clean up
  • Working with students as needed

Benefits of Volunteering:

  • Make a real difference in the lives of people at risk of hunger and malnutrition
  • Learn about healthy low-cost cooking
  • Meet a new and diverse group of people
  • Do something new and have fun!
