Community Cooks is a nonprofit that mobilizes hundreds of volunteers who make home-cooked meals for hungry and vulnerable neighbors in their community. For 30 years, we've been bringing our home-cooked meals to people in shelters, low-income families, seniors and students, at-risk women and youth, veterans and so many who are struggling.

Volunteer Cooks are assigned to a team to cook for a specific agency in their area. Once a month Cooks make a specific course of a meal (main course, veggies/salad, dessert, etc.) in their own home and deliver it to a designated drop-off location. Others prepare snack packs (sandwiches, carrots, apples, cookies) for students in after school and weekend programs.
