We are looking for individuals enthusiastic about healthy eating and children’s programming to join us! After participating in a hands-on training, volunteers are partnered with a Spoons Across America Food Educator and assist in all aspects of program implementation. We look for an ongoing commitment between volunteers and a particular classroom or school, yet can also accommodate one-time volunteers. Volunteer responsibilities include assisting with program set up, working directly with children, teaching cooking skills, and assisting in the kitchen where appropriate.
Our first training for 2016-17 has already occurred, but we will be holding additional trainings for later this Fall. Please contact us if you would like to attend the training. The sessions are 1 1/2 hours long and provide information on all our programs. See below for more information.
* Please note: Volunteers must complete and pass a background check prior to the program start date.
I want to volunteer, but I am not available right now. Will there be other opportunities to get involved?
I want to volunteer, but I can’t attend either of the scheduled trainings. Will there be other trainings?
