Slow Food Volunteers
To summarize our program activities in one sentence: Our Lil’ Sprouts and Seed to Plate programs are gardening and cooking programs for small classes of elementary and middle school students in the Denver area. Volunteers will be assisting our Slow Food Denver instructors in these cooking and gardening classes.
Our goal for the Lil' Sprouts and Seed to Plate programs is to provide an interactive learning environment transforming children from passive food consumers to creators, and in doing so increase their health awareness. This learner-driven approach inspires children to develop healthy, lifelong eating habits by making the connection between where food comes from and how it is prepared. Children discover their own taste preferences, learn to create dishes they enjoy and derive self-esteem as they learn new skills and gain confidence in the kitchen. Participation in the entire seed to table experience results in a more intimate relationship with food.
All volunteers must be fully vaccinated and may be asked to show proof of vaccination to be able to enter the schools. Masks must be worn at ALL times. Please be sure to confirm the location of the school before signing up. Each volunteer opportunity is separated by date and location. Feel free to sign up for single sessions or multiple dates.
**Please note that for Johnson Elementary School we are looking for a consitent volunteer that can commit to the entire 6 week session.
