Are you interested in volunteering with Cooking Matters Maine? We are always looking for chefs, nutritionists and others who want to share their strength! Our classes meet for two hours a week for six weeks. We provide the curriculum, groceries and the recipes but we encourage you to bring your own personal style to class.
