Food-as-Medicine Volunteer

Being a volunteer with the Food-as-Medicine program allows the opportunity to practice general nutrition education to real clients who suffer from chronic illnesses. This opportunity could benefit those seeking community nutrition hours for the Registered Dietician (RD) program or if seeking a career in health education, public health, community nutrition, etc. Volunteers are a crucial part to maintaining a functional nutrition class and therefore, will be granted a certificate of completion of this program for their records.

Volunteer responsibilities will vary. Volunteers will usually help facilitate a nutrition class by assisting with activities or cooking demonstrations. A two-hour training on the curriculum is required before you are able to help facilitate a class. Classes are held via Zoom every other Tuesday. Volunteers may also achieve hours by visiting the office to assist with office work and preparation before a class. The Emergency Food Bank will accommodate anyone with special needs.
