“I love volunteering for Green Plate Special! GPS really values its volunteers, we are treated with respect and I love the way we are literally included at the table for the communal meal. Whether it’s taking care of the chickens, teaching youth in the garden or the kitchen, every moment is helping to – make a difference.”

– Debra Page, GPS Volunteer

“Volunteering at GPS, you have a chance to interact with diverse Seattle kids and watch them feel real pride in their projects, watch them resist trying a new food and then discover they like it, to hear their stories about food and culture in their own homes. Volunteering for these kids and working with Laura’s team is never work: the classes are well organized, the school is clean and bright, the garden is of course beautiful in all seasons and the recipes we work with are always delicious. I think my favorite recent experience was watching my group of 4 kids prep and cook their own omelets. They flipped and turned the eggs like artists and they were so proud.”
