Volunteer Opportunities

We couldn’t do it without our volunteers! Their passion and dedication helps our program thrive and grow to meet the needs our our community.

Whether you’re interested in gaining culinary or gardening skills we have a spot for you! It’s important to us that our volunteers take away new skills, build connections, and enjoy the time they spend with us, so we invest time in trainings and coaching opportunities that cater to your interests, build on your strengths, and promotes a sustained passion for food. There’s always something new to learn when it comes to food!
