Become a Zenger Farm FOOD EDUCATOR!

Become a Zenger Farm FOOD EDUCATOR! Help us build food security in our neighborhood by being a part of our newest program, Healthy Eating on a Budget. Volunteer Food Educators work as a team to conduct gardening, shopping and cooking workshops in East Portland. Help folks with limited budgets gain skills to grow, shop for, and cook healthy meals.


There are several volunteer roles to fill, including chefs, youth educators, garden educators and assistants. We especially need skilled cooks with experience stretching food dollars and would love to work with volunteers who live in East Portland. We welcome applications from volunteers of all backgrounds and experience levels who are excited about learning the workshop format and content and developing proficiency in their volunteer role. We ask for a commitment of 2 workshops (about 10 hours) per month for 3 months.
