I have had the opportunity to interview some volunteers with Cooking with the Troops. They did a Cuban pig roast at Brooke Army Medical Center. Their passion for helping the military members, wounded, and their families brought tears to my eyes. They worked so hard to give everyone a great day.

Everyone from the founded of the charity to those who do cooking demonstrations and who cook for the troops are dedicated and have wonderful energy. I hope they continue their great work for our troops!

I have been blessed to watch Cooking with the Troops develop over the past couple of years. I have watched the announcements and also have recommended this organization to others who are looking for a positive and tangible way to support our military members.

I have followed and read stories of military members who have been served by Cooking with the Troops, and it is evident that this is not only a way to build morale and community, but it truly blesses those who attend the functions.

Cooking with the Troops supports U.S. and Allied troops, their families, and caregivers through four major programs: Food Events, Culinary Careers, Homefront Support, and Frontline Support Food is family, it is hope, it is comfort, it is nutrition. With your help, we can bring those things and more to the men and women who make freedom possible.
