La Cocina VA relies on volunteers like you to support our students and beneficiaries every day. Our mission is to use the power of food to create socioeconomic change in low-income communities. Help us make our dream a reality by contributing your time and skills!
Come do a cooking demonstration, mentor students, or share your insights and expertise.
Present on topics that can add to the personal and professional development of our students! Potential topics include: career development, motivation, conflict resolution, interview skills, workers’ rights, self-advocacy, and coping skills.
Pick up and transport our healthy meals to our Arlington neighbors in homeless shelters and low income housing.
Engage in special projects in communications, media and design. If you have skills in social media and IT, ask us how to get involved!
Provide guidance and expertise from your work and personal experiences. Support a student or graduate in staying on track to reach their goals.
