Volunteers Get Social Over Ice Cream

By Brittany Kirk April 19, 2013

Ice cream sundaes marked the end of another successful round of Cooking Matters courses—and a chance to enjoy a cold treat during last week’s heat—as dedicated culinary and nutrition volunteers gathered in the Mildred J. Brooks Learning Center.
While enjoying their sundaes, volunteers networked and shared best practices with each other. Together, they recapped their latest classes and took a moment to prepare for the new round of courses taking place throughout the D.C. metro region this spring.
The Capital Area Food Bank extends a heartfelt thank you to Cooking Matters volunteers for their service in facilitating over 160 hours of culinary and nutrition training for kids, families, teens and adults this winter. Their hours of patient instruction helped over 100 new graduates bring healthy, affordable home-cooked meals into their households.
We would not be able to do this great work without our volunteers, so thank you for your dedication and for inspiring a love for cooking and nutrition in our region!
