Group Cooking for Made by Momma at ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen
~ These dates are usually reserved for corporate groups or private parties, but we have an available cooking date for our volunteers and supporters! ~
ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen Learning Centre, Main floor, 909 - 11 Avenue S.W.
We have a wonderful relationship with the chefs at ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen, whereby we offer an afternoon or evening of cooking to stock the freezers at Made by Momma. The state of the art kitchen accommodates groups of between approximately 12-28 people for a hands-on cooking experience. The event is a lot of fun, and includes the following;
(1) a prosecco welcoming reception attended by one of our board members who can say a few words about the work Made by Momma does in the community,
(2) a chef demonstration followed by hands on cooking experience.
(3) a recipe booklet of the dishes prepared for the volunteers to take home.
(4) a light meal with wine or beer for the volunteers to enjoy after cooking, prepared by the Atco Blue Flame chefs.
All the meals prepared are then labelled, packaged and frozen, ready for delivery to the families Made by Momma is assisting.
Where do the meals go?
Prior to the event, the chefs liaise with us to understand the dietary needs of the families we are currently assisting.
Many of the families are undergoing treatments for cancer and other illnesses, and as a result their diets need extra nutrients to supplement the effects of their medical treatments. Others have numerous allergies. Therefore these Atco group cooking events are very valuable to us as the meals prepared at Atco go directly to the families with very specific dietary needs.
There is a charge per person for this volunteering opportunity. Our cost to ATCO is $68.25 per person which must be prepaid though us to reserve your spot. We are not able to offer refunds.
This is an adult-only event. We must have 12 people RSVP'd/paid by Monday in order to run this event.
