Teenagers often make their own food choices yet face several barriers in achieving healthy food habits. Teens who are involved with cooking and nutritional education discover that healthy food can be nourishing, tasty and easy to prepare, while also learning about the powerful relationship between food and health. The Revive and Thrive model of service elevates teens from learners to nurturing leaders; a position that provides leadership lessons and esteem-building experiences that can benefit all aspects of their life.You’ll have the opportunity to have fun cooking with other teens while helping people fighting severe illness. With the guidance of adult mentor chefs, you’ll learn to prepare, cook, and package meals.No experience is necessary to join our Teen Chef program. We request a minimum of a 12-week volunteer commitment.Teen Volunteering takes place each Wednesday from 3:30 to 6:30 pm. In the summer months: We meet on Wednesdays from 10 am - 2:30 pm.We ask that our teens are at least in 8th grade and between the ages of 14 and 19.
