Operation Frontline gets a New Name!

18 Oct

The program formally known as Operation Frontline is now called “Cooking Matters!”   Operation Frontline was originally named because chefs were volunteering their time on the “frontline” to end hunger.  We have grown so much over the years, and we wanted to give the program a name that truly represented its mission, which is cooking! Why does cooking matter” to you? It could matter for many reasons. Whether it’s because it allows you to feed your family healthy, nutritious meals, or because it makes you happy- the bottom line is that it matters! Please stay-tuned for more information and updates about the name change, and also about future volunteer activities.  We hope you like the new name!
