Work With Us
Making sure that no kid in America grows up hungry is a task that cannot be done alone. Please join us–there are a number of ways you can become a part of the Cooking Matters team.
AmeriCorps members are a vital part of local Cooking Matters programs across the country. These remarkable individuals dedicate a year of their lives to improving Cooking Matters programs – doing everything from coordinating classes to recruiting volunteers to blogging about their experiences.
AmeriCorps*National Direct members work with local Cooking Matters staff to enhance and expand programs across the country. Members recruit and train volunteers, identify new class sites, establish and maintain partnerships, coordinate cooking-based nutrition classes, and develop sustainable financial support for the program. Members are visible in the communities where they work and work closely with program volunteers, a network of nonprofit agencies, class participants and graduates. Both full and part-time volunteer positions are available, and require a 9-12 month commitment.
