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.
Update! New Trainings scheduled for March! Please see below and contact us with your interest!
All volunteers receive training at the Spoons Across America offices (630 Ninth Ave @ 44th St in Manhattan). If you are interested in volunteering with Spoons Across America this year, please contact Ali McDowell, Director of Programs and Partnerships, at firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, please indicate which of the following trainings you would like to attend.
- Wednesday, March 1: 5:00-6:30
- Monday, March 6: 12:00-1:30
Please note: Volunteers must complete and pass a background check prior to the program start date.
