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

To become a cook, please complete THIS FORM. Sign up to join our Community of Cooks and we'll send you a cooking assignment. Find a recipe based on your assignment, and gather your ingredients. Get cooking! Take pictures of your creations and post to social media and tag @Communitycooks and @ProjectGivingKids. Have an adult deliver it to a specific location on a certain day (we will tell you that too and will try to make the location as close to your house as possible).
