Chef and Nutrition Educators for Cooking Matters™ Program


Share Our Strength’s national Cooking Matters™ program, administered locally by Gleaners Community Food Bank, needs enthusiastic chef and nutrition educators to help teach and facilitate classes, which are two hours a week for six weeks. We are looking for chefs, cooks, culinary students, dietitians and dietetic students to share their expertise and knowledge with the community. Time commitment is minimal and the experience is very rewarding. This is great opportunity for anyone interested in providing basic cooking and nutrition information to those who need it most. For more information please check out our blog or contact volunteer coordinator Rebecca Blauw at
