Calling All Volunteers! We need your help now that we are in full swing for the school year.
Each Thursday and Friday we deliver and distribute the backpacks of food at the schools and we need volunteers to assist in this process. Do you live near a school? Are you an early bird and can take the van of backpacks to the schools early?! If so, we could use your help!
We also are starting back up the kitchen classes in the Emeril Lagasse Foundation Full Circle Kitchen. You do not need to be a chef to teach these students how to cook! We are just looking for enthusiastic volunteers who are able to follow a recipe and lead kids in cooking a recipe - we keep the meals pretty simple so that they may be able to replicate at home.
If you are interested or available, please contact us via email here: email@example.com.
School has been in session for over a month now which means our programs are in full-swing and we need volunteers to help in a few areas!
Immediate Volunteer Opportunities This Week:
- Grayton Beer Oktoberfest (noon to 4pm) & Eggs on the Beach (10-1:30pm)
- Both of these events are on Saturday, 9/28 and proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit Food For Thought
- Both are fun events, but you will be on your feet
- Backpack Delivery and Distribution Thursdays & Fridays
- Kitchen Instructors for cooking classes in the Full Circle Kitchen (various dates this fall)
If you are available and interested, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org!
Thank you in advance for your help!

On Wednesday, July 10th we had the privilege of hosting the Walton County Chamber of Commerce "Power of Networking Luncheon," at the Santa Rosa Beach pantry. We love when we can share our facility with local businesses and organizations and the monthly luncheon for the Chamber of Commerce was the perfect opportunity to do so.
Almost 80 members of the Walton County Chamber of Commerce attended and they were able to walk through our facility, talk to other business owners and enjoy a lunch prepared by Marrow Private Chefs. Then fun was had by all with some networking fun playing a modified version of Family Feud!
It was great to also be able to share our mission here at Food For Thought and share opportunities to be able to get involved, especially with the upcoming school year.
Are you savvy/experienced in the kitchen?! We are looking for volunteers to lead and assist cooking classes for students in the Emeril Lagasse Full Circle Kitchen. Not need to be a professional chef! Menus are simple and easy to follow and lead; we just need people who like to cook and want to teach and lead kids in the kitchen!
