Cooking for Hope is  an amazing opportunity for our community’s teens
to come together for an incredible cause while having fun and learning to cook at the same time!

During each session, teens will have the opportunity to have fun and learn to cook a variety of Kosher dishes,  all the while bringing hope and happiness to those coping with illness.

After the food is cooked, they are portioned into freezer-safe packages and frozen in our freezers. Throughout the month, volunteers can personally deliver the dishes to community members who are not well. A cheerful visit with a home-cooked care package can do wonders. Conveniently frozen while fresh, these meals can be reheated at their convenience.

If you know of someone in need of a home-cooked meal (whether recovering from surgery, birth, or going through illness or other challenging situations), please let us know as well so that we can arrange to deliver a meal/meals to them.

Cooking for Hope sessions are held on the 3rd or 4th Wednesday of each month, beginning in November, 2023.  Join us for the opportunity to cook a variety of Kosher dishes, all the while bringing hope and happiness to those coping with illness.
