The Food Demo program equips individuals who rely on food pantries with the skills to cook nutritious meals using accessible ingredients.

Food Demos are held during food pantry hours and at HUD retirement facilities and aim to empower participants to transform pantry staples and fresh produce into wholesome dishes. We’re on a mission to cultivate healthier communities, and we need your help!

Are you passionate about nutrition and cooking? Join us as a volunteer instructor and be a part of this important program. Your expertise will contribute to the well-being of our community by teaching essential cooking skills and promoting healthier food choices. Together, we can empower individuals to make the most of available resources, fostering a culture of health and resilience. Sign up to volunteer today and be a catalyst for positive change in the lives of those we serve!
