THANK YOU Volunteers!

April 28, 2017

This week is National Volunteer Week and with our classroom program in full swing what a great time to take stock and acknowledge our amazing team of skilled volunteers. THANK YOU to our amazing volunteers. You are the ones who bring our classroom gardening and cooking programs to life!

THANK YOU to our amazing volunteers! You are the ones who bring our classroom gardening and cooking programs to life.

While our chef volunteers are always at the heart of our program, over the years we have had nutritionists, farmers, gardeners, students, educators, photographers, carpenters, bankers, parents, office administrators, and numerous other volunteers from all sorts of backgrounds who have all come together out of their shared passion for healthy eating and local, sustainable agriculture.

We are privileged to be part of a fantastic community that connects so many incredible individuals, businesses, and organizations who never stop amazing us with their passion and dedication.

We wouldn’t be where we are today without the dedication of our volunteers. This year we have over 150 volunteers working in the classroom across the lower mainland and in Victoria to teach over 1,500 kids about healthy food and food systems. , we also have volunteers helping us in the office, participating in outreach activities, advocating for our programs, assisting with raising much-needed funding to support our programs, and sharing their knowledge, passion, and skills to help us.

But wait, there’s more! We also have a volunteer Board of Directors, volunteers helping us in the office, participating in outreach activities, advocating for our programs, assisting with raising much-needed funding to support our programs, and sharing their knowledge, passion, and skills to help us. Plus, many of our volunteers also donate to Growing Chefs! Amazing.

The gift a volunteer gives to an organization is priceless! We are so grateful to those who choose to volunteer with Growing Chefs! THANK YOU a thousand times over!
