About Us

Community Cooks is a nonprofit organization with a unique and powerful model. We mobilize individuals, businesses, civic, educational, and faith-based groups to provide home prepared food for vulnerable neighbors. We do this by partnering with shelters, after school programs, and other human service agencies that provide support for those struggling with food insecurity. By providing home cooked meals to these agencies, we free up their time to focus on their advocacy and service models as well as ensure that those that they are helping receive the nutrition they need to meet their daily challenges. We currently have over 900 volunteer cooks that provide more than 5,100 monthly meals to more than 45 partner agencies in the Greater Boston area.

 

Community Cooks was founded as an all-volunteer organization 29 years ago. In 2012, we transitioned to a 501(c)(3) and now have a paid staff of four, an engaged Board of Directors, and a budget of over $400,000 annually.
