Food 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 United States. Cooking for a Cause allows corporate groups to partake in an exhilarating team experience that culminates with a meaningful and worthwhile donation of food to people in need. Your group can help feed the hungry and will cook and eat food they prepare during the event, but the program also allows for a 3-pronged donation to hungry area populations:
Recipe for Success facilitators will help participants better comprehend the nature of the issue of hunger in the U.S. through a brief interactive introduction on the topic. Then, teams get cooking!! Teams will complete the following 3 tasks (The Cooking Competition, The Great PB&J Challenge, & Food Bag Donation) each with a competitive twist that will keep participants on their toes!
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!

Good feelings that come from giving to someone in need
Thank you for coordinating this event for my team. We really enjoyed the day and I've received a lot of positive feedback from my group.
It went very well. I was traveling on the day of the event and I didn’t actually get to attend… but I heard it was a huge success and that everyone really enjoyed it!
We really had a great time at our meeting on 2/4/2010. This is definitely a night no one will forget. I would greatly appreciate if you could send me the recipes from that evening.
It was a pleasure meeting you. Seriously, you really know how to put on a show. What a great and beneficial day. I was one of the agents on the middle back table and we made stuffed mushrooms. Thank you.
Our office is still buzzing about their cooking experience. EVERYONE that participated had a wonderful time - no complaints coming from anyone is just amazing! People who didn't really know one another are striking up conversations.
