Recipes 4 Learning offers local High School students an opportunity to earn community service hours at our Huntington, NY facility. There, students will assist in assembling and packing cookie kits.
You can volunteer as an individual, as a group of a High School club or High Schools can arrange volunteer groups with Recipes 4 Learning directly.
High School Special Seniors
High Schools can arrange for their special education classes to receive all the elements of Recipes 4 Learning Cookie Kits which have been ordered for an elementary class. The Special Seniors class assembles the Cookie Kits and then deliver them to the elementary classes directly. The assembly process of the kit offers first steps in vocational training either in class or at our facility. We provide detailed instructions for educators to guide students in assembling the kits. No food preparation is required.
The Recipes 4 Learning Transition Program offers those with IDD/DD a two-year non-credited work transition program where they can gain job skills, social and daily living skills training with a focus on Career Development in the food industry. The program currently operates out of our commercial kitchen and production facility at 320 Broadway Greenlawn in Huntington, NY.
