The Culinary Corps, which founder Christine Carroll describes as, “The Peace Corps for cooks”, is seeking highly skilled professional cooks and bakers and culinary students to volunteer for culinary preservation and rebuilding projects being formed throughout the country (and eventually, around the world).
As it says in this article on the Matador Volunteer website:
“Each trip is an intense, active, hands-on experience in which participants prepare meals for volunteers and community members, as well as coordinate food-related events with community partners (past events have included food field days for local schools and a fundraising brunch for a community agriculture program).
The emphasis of every project is respecting the local culture’s culinary traditions, creating sustainable connections between volunteers and community members, and supporting rebuilding efforts through collaboration and culanthropy.”
Culinary Corps’ most recent volunteer opportunity was held in New Orleans. According to Culinary Corps, volunteers served approximately 1,200 meals during that project as well as led cooking classes and demos.

CulinaryCorps is based in Manhattan and is a non-profit pursuit under the fiscal sponsorship of Share Our Strength, a 501(c)3 organization fighting global hunger and based in Washington, DC.
