CULINARY CORPS SEEKS NEW ORLEANS VOLUNTEERS

After a successful inaugural trip in March, CulinaryCorps is gearing up for a second trip to New Orleans from June 1-8th. They are currently working to create a team of 14-18 people to participate in the week-long service experience. During their second trip they'll be volunteering with several organizations including the Crescent City Farmer's Market, Emergency Communities (a feeding kitchen in the lower 9th ward) and NOLA Edible Schoolyard. Along with the service activities, the trip incorporates educational events that will allow participants to experience the vital food culture that makes New Orleans the tremendous city that it is. There are tours, classes, tastings and excursions planned throughout the week that will illustrate the vital importance of preserving a community's food heritage. CulinaryCorps is commited to building culinary leaders committed to social change within their communities and beyond. For more information, visit www.culinarycorps.org
