Cooking Matters

tips on cooking, budgeting and more. From shopping for recipe ingredients, to leading classes, to communicating key messages, volunteers make our nutrition education program work.  

Time commitment and schedule

Each volunteer commits to a six-week class series using Share our Strength’s Cooking Matters™ curricula. Cooking Matters™ is nationally sponsored by the ConAgra Foods® Foundation and Walmart.

Volunteers must attend an orientation session one week before classes begin. Classes are held mornings, afternoons or evenings at the same time each week and are two hours per session. We schedule classes on-site at our northeast Portland and Beaverton facilities, and at off-site locations throughout the community.

 
Volunteers are placed based on the following schedule:

 

  • In December for classes between January and March
  • In March for classes between April and June
  • In June for classes between July and September
  • In September for classes between October and December

No volunteers are scheduled mid-season, but potential volunteers are welcome to observe a class at any time.
