WHERE

In your kitchen!

WHEN

All year round

WHOSE HELP IS REQUIRED

Some help from Mom, Dad or a grown up is required.

HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

As a member of a Cooking team, your dish will be served, along with 4 other dishes to create a complete home cooked meal for a group of people (homeless women and children, low income elders, people struggling with disabilities) who may otherwise go hungry.

DESCRIPTION

Once a month, cook or bake one part of a complete meal: main course, veggies, side dish or dessert for people in your community who may otherwise go without.


ITEMS NEEDED

1. A recipe and ingredients from the grocery store to make your assigned dish.

2. A kitchen to make it in - with a stove, oven, fridge, cookware, etc.

3. Transportation so you can deliver your food once it's made.
