Confidence in the Kitchen

Empoweed by the Cooking Matters class, Ying shared some of the small changes that have helped her adapt to Western culture. “We used to eat healthy in China. Now we just cook in a different way."

Chef Steve Dunn

When Massachusetts-based chef Steve Dunn began scouting about for volunteer opportunities a couple years back, he never dreamed that he’d find such a perfect fit in Cooking Matters.

Cooking Matters Bridges Cultures

“The food and the learning (and the sense of community) brought them together.”

 -Benjamin Brennan, Food for Families Coordinator, MGH Chelsea

New Traditions

Maria had completely given up on cooking.  No matter what, her daughter just wouldn’t try new foods.

Maria's Story

As a single mom, Maria doesn’t have much time to cook when she returns home from work exhausted, nor does she really want to spend more time cooking after a long workday of frying and mixing.

Annette's Story

“Remember the plate!” Annette’s 10-year-old daughter tells her as they travel through the grocery store. Her daughter is referencing the USDA’s “My Plate,” a guide for healthy eating.

Four Volunteers Making a Difference

This June, several of our dedicated Cooking Matters Massachusetts volunteers, Phyll, Rachel, Steve, and Karen, were recognized for their amazing work at Share Our Strength’s annual Conference of Leaders.

Winning at the Grocery Store

Nancy’s lack of culinary expertise didn’t go unnoticed by her five-year-old son. He used to say, “Mommy can’t cook.” The truth was that Nancy opted for fast food take-out because it was easy and inexpensive.
