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 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.
* Please note: Volunteers must complete and pass a background check prior to the program start date.
We have a number of on-going programs for school age children in New York City. See attached for program descriptions and our website www.spoonsacrossamerica.org
All volunteers receive training at the Spoons Across America offices (630 Ninth Ave @ 44th St in Manhattan). We do not have any trainings currently scheduled, if you are interested in volunteering with Spoons Across America, please contact us
, and we will let you know about any upcoming opportunities.
If you received training AND volunteered last year (2014-2015) you may not need to attend. “Refresher” phone calls will be scheduled with current and returning volunteers. PLEASE CONTACT US
Definitely! If you are unable to volunteer at this point, we will have other opportunities available this winter and spring. If possible, please attend one of the scheduled trainings. Programs are ongoing and once you are trained you will be able to volunteer. Additional trainings will be held later this year.
