Bag Lunch Program

This program provides an opportunity for volunteers to do service on their own time. We need volunteers to make bag lunches throughout the week to give out to the homeless and day laborers that come through our facility. This is also a great opportunity for student volunteers to assemble sandwiches for our bag lunches as a class project. Please reach out to Volunteer Director Theresa Diersen at [email protected] to schedule a convenient time for this volunteer opportunity.

Cooking For The Family

Students learn 8 basic cooking skills, create a full meal to enjoy in class, get fresh produce to take home each class, and receive a cooking kit to take home at the end of the series. Each recipe learned features a healthy meal that can feed a family of 4 for under $10! Volunteers for this program assist the students and Chef Instructor with set up, clean up, and cooking during the cooking classes. A meal is provided at the end of each class for volunteers as well.
