Community Food Education Volunteer Training
March 19, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Solid Ground’s Community Food Education programs offer cooking and nutrition classes to community members living on low-incomes. We encourage maximizing food resources with adults and families through Cooking Matters classes and grocery budgeting events, and with youth in elementary school classes. With the help of volunteers, we provide hands-on, learner-driven education that combines cooking skills, nutrition knowledge, menu planning, budgeting, kitchen safety, and sanitation.
Do you love cooking? Do you love to teach? Do you love to eat healthy? Community Food Education is seeking volunteer Cooking Facilitators, Nutrition Facilitators, and Class Assistants for our 6-week cooking and nutrition education courses to share their knowledge and skills with Seattle-area communities experiencing food insecurity.
Join us at our next Community Food Education Volunteer Training to learn more!* Trainings are hosted once per month. We ask all volunteers interested in Cooking Matters classes to attend this required 3-hour training to learn more about:
- Cooking Matters 6-week cooking and nutrition class series
- Our volunteer opportunities and expectations
- Youth education classes and events
- Our teaching methods and approach to our work
*Please note: All volunteers must have attended (or be signed up for) a Solid Ground Volunteer Orientation or must be a Cooking Matters Satellite Partner Volunteer. Please email Shana for more information.
