Volunteer with us!

It takes dozens of reliable, friendly volunteers to make Chefs in the Classroom – edible education happen. Join our team and help young students on their journey to healthy and delicious local food!

New Volunteers

We are currently not seeking additional volunteers for the 2022 school year as we have taken the program virtual.  If you wish to volunteer for the future please complete the volunteer application form below and we will be in contact when planning for 2023.

We are actively seeking a volunteer coordinator to join our team with the plan (and hope) to go back into the classrooms for 2023.

Our mission is to educate children in our community how to grow, cook and eat local foods, with a vision of growing healthy children in our community.

We have a tremendous team of committed volunteers and hope that you will join us. You do NOT have to be a Chef or a member of the Okanagan Chefs Association to participate. We have farmers, gardeners, home cooks, nutritionists, educators, parents and others who contribute to our success.

I am so pleased to be a part of Chefs in the Classroom.  It was beautifully organized- everyone worked so well together…  And of course the children were adorable.

This is how we build communities ????

I can see this is destined to be a very fulfilling activity for me, I am grateful to be included.
