Cooking For A Cause

It's Fare to Share!

This exhilarating culinary team building activity ends in a meaningful and worthwhile donation of food to people in need. The program includes the food prepared and enjoyed by the participants during the event and a three-part donation to area food banks.


RFS_RGB_SM-01Food is one of the most basic needs of all human beings, yet thousands of men, women and children go to sleep hungry every night throughout the U.S. In the Cooking For A Cause program, corporate teams will bond while making a meaningful and worthwhile donation of food to people in need. Your group will cook and eat food they prepare during the event, but the program also allows for a 3-pronged donation to hungry area populations:

  • Hot food donation to area soup kitchens
  • Sandwich/snack donation for delivery to food drop-off sites
  • Food pantry donation of “Food Bag” to families in need

This program has three components: the Cooking Competition, The Great PB & J Challenge, and Food Bag Donation. All involve  cooking, competition and challenges as teams work together to provide fare to share with local families in need.

When possible, staff from the benefiting organization will be on hand to receive the donations. What a great way to build your team and give back to the community!
