Family Teaching Kitchen Volunteers

Volunteer with Family Teaching Kitchens!

United Way of Metropolitan Nashville, Vanderbilt School of Nursing CASTLES Program, Saint Thomas Family Health Clinic, and the South Nashville Family Resource Center will be working together to offer Family Teaching Kitchens and Academic Tutoring in 2015. The Family Teaching Kitchens give families an opportunity to learn healthy techniques and practices to help change and improve their families’ health.

Join us by signing up to volunteer at these hands-on opportunities:

Teaching Kitchen Prep
Family Teaching Kitchens offer families an opportunity to learn how to prepare a healthy meal and give families the chance to try something new!  Volunteers are needed to help with set-up and food prep. This includes putting together take-home bags for participants, getting the tables and chairs in place, setting the table, setting up demo stations and prepping food that will be used for the teaching kitchen. Volunteers are welcome to stay for the Teaching Kitchen from 10:00am-11:00am and help in whatever way needed.
Time required for activity:  1 hour
Volunteers needed: Minimum 4, Maximum 6

Academic Enrichment (High School Students)
Volunteers are needed to help with tutoring support for high school students while parents are attending the Teaching Kitchen. Academic Enrichment volunteers will help students with reading and math, specifically. In the summer months, volunteers will be working with the Vanderbilt staff to lead students through a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) in the garden curriculum. This curriculum will help strengthen math skills and introduce students to fresh vegetables. Following the Academic Enrichment time, students will enjoy lunch with their parents.
Time required for activity: 1 hour
Volunteers needed: Minimum 2, Maximum 4
