Cook for Kids

**Due to COVID-19, the Nursery has made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend respite care in order to keep children, families, volunteers, and staff safe. All volunteer shifts are currently suspended and this page will continue to be updated to share when we will be resuming residential care and meal shifts.
We want to be ready to serve children as soon as we resume residential respite services. Your gift will ensure children have nutritious meals and snacks immediately upon resuming residential services.**

There are three ways you can participate:

  • Sponsor – $100 – Can’t make it to the Nursery but want to make sure our kiddos have full bellies? Choose this option and we’ll take care of everything.
  • Shopper – No payment to the Nursery. Your group purchases and brings your own groceries, making a recipe of your choice based on our meal grid. **Unfortunately,  due to COVID-19, this plan will no longer be an option until further notice***
  • Chef – $100 – Keep it simple – we find a fun recipe and provide the food. All you need to do is arrive at the scheduled time and cook. No meal planning or shopping involved!

Volunteers must be 12 years or older and be accompanied by an adult age 21 years or older.

Time Commitment: 2 – 2.5 hours, including prep and clean-up.

Breakfast: 7:00 am – 9:00 am (served at 8:00 am)
Lunch: 11:00 am – 1:00 pm (served at noon)
Dinner: 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm (served at 5:00 pm)
