18 Reasons is a non-profit based in SF’s Mission District. It is the only
organization in the Bay Area running Cooking Matters, a Share Our Strength
nationwide program. Through Cooking Matters 18 Reasons brings free 6 week
nutrition and cooking classes to kids, teens, adults, and families in the
Bay Area community. Each class series is run by a team composed of 1
Cooking Matters coordinator or 18 Reasons staff member with 3 volunteers.
All class participants receive a bag with fruits and/or veggies after
every class. 18 Reasons is interested in partnering with Mission Dignity
to do a Cooking Matters class series with youth involved in your program
in order for those interested to become volunteers for 18 Reasons and/or
to eventually become paid community health workers.
