Seed to Plate SWAT Team




Long-Term (6 months-1 year)


Rodriguez Elementary School
Chimney Rock Road

United States


IT'S SCHOOL TIME! Want to get into the classroom with us to inspire elementary kids to love healthy food? We will be cooking and gardening with thousands of Houston elementary children Monday-Thursday, and our instructors treasure your help delivering our award-winning Seed-to-Plate Nutrition Education™. Make sure you have attended one of our monthly Volunteer Orientations. Work times are mornings and afternoons M-Th during the school day at various locations. 

You simply need to love working with children and have an interest in cooking and/or gardening – novices welcome! On any given day, you could be in our Recipe Gardens coaxing a seedling to life, harvesting ripe produce, or cooking those fresh fruits and vegetables in one of our culinary classrooms. Our volunteers help our pro Seed-to-Plate Nutrition Education™ Instructor guide the children, share in the experience, and spread the joy of healthy food. We look forward to seeing you in the classroom!

How To Apply

Please reach out to the volunteer coordinator for more information on requirements prior to working in the classroom. Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you soon!
