Seeking Food Specialists

One Community is now seeking contributions to our open source resource for nutritious menus and bulk foods for groups of 50+ and one or two chefs/culinary professionals to join either our Core Team or our Volunteers and Consultants team.

Goal: Create  (a month+ of) week long maximally nutritious, affordable, delicious, and easy to prepare menus with week-at-a-time grocery/food lists designed to feed 50+ people that are doing a lot of physical labor. We would like meals to be based on the criteria found on this page, by selecting a few bulk items for base calories each week, and making creative combinations of those and adding varying herbs, spices, cooking styles, veggies, nutrient packed foods, etc.

To help us with that, we are looking for contributions that people send in Volunteers/Consultant or member applications for the following positions:
