Cooking 4 Love


Every week, Cooking 4 Love at JHU defines what it means to be a great service organization. In combining the simple joys of cooking with friends and service to the community, we reach out in an unparalleled fashion to those less fortunate in Baltimore. Instead of eating the food we prepare, we deliver and serve our hot meals to those in need. In the diverse setting of a university, we offer students a chance to experience the different parts of Baltimore and to open their eyes to lives that may not be the same as the one to which they are accustomed. We have three different volunteering shifts on Fridays and Saturdays.

Here are descriptions of all our volunteering opportunities: 

My Sister's Place Cooking Shifts and Serving Shifts: My Sister's Place is a resource center for impoverished and homeless women in Baltimore. There are two shifts for this shelter: you can cook the dinner that will be served to the women that evening, or you can serve the food to the women directly(or both if you'd like!).

Cooking Shift (2-4 PM Friday) or Serving Shift (4-6:30 PM Friday).

Both shifts meet at the Interfaith Center (IFC) at the start of their sign-up time. 


Christopher's Place Employment Academy Shift: Christopher's Place is an employment program that provides education, training, and recovery support to formerly homeless men of the Baltimore area. You will be serving dinner to residents of the program, and you will be able to sit, eat, and talk with them.

Christopher's Place Shift: 5:20-7:00PM Saturday

Shift meets outside of the Center for Social Concern (CSC)
