Rules and Regulations

1.  Our mission of the Domestic Divas cooking club is to simplify life by providing meals for our       families but also for families in need if time and budget allow.

2.  Members must practice serve safe conditions at all times.  This includes washing hands frequently, keeping foods at proper temperatures, etc.  Hair should be kept up and hairnets or hats may be required.

3.. The Domestic Divas Cooking Club will meet on the first Wednesday of the month at Trinity Lutheran unless another date/time/place is specified by the coordinator. We will begin at 8:30 am sharp so if you need time to unload/unpack, please arrive earlier to do so. You can also drop your stuff off at the church the day before cooking club during normal business hours.  Consequences for tardiness will be determined by the coordinator.

4. Prep work tasks are required by ALL members. This is only fair to the people that work hard to coordinate cooking club. Consequences for missed prep work will be determined by the coordinator but may result in a replacement for that month.

5.  It is your responsibility to arrange prep work pick-up with the coordinator.  If you are going to be gone during prep work time, it is your responsibility to make other arrangements.  Failure to do so may result in a replacement for that month

6. A 30-day notice is required for all members who choose not to participate in Cooking Club for a month or longer period of time.

7. If you need to miss an entire day, you will be required to assemble 1-2 meals on your own. While I understand that circumstances can occur to anyone, this is only fair to everyone who participates. If you are sick and the group cannot complete all the meals in a fair and timely manner, you may be required to assemble a meal at a later date.  Since we are not a supper swap, attendance is encouraged and if you need to miss Cooking Club, it must be approved by the Coordinator.

8. If you need to miss any amount of time on cooking club day, you must contact the coordinator via text or phone call. Please contact me directly instead of having someone else spread the word that you won't be there.

9. If a funeral were to take place on cooking club day, our next cooking date would be the next available date (Thursday or Friday). The same would pertain to a snow day (closed schools). Please keep this in mind when planning events, etc. While this would be a rare occurrence, it could still happen.

10. Please do not schedule appointments on cooking day. The only exception to leave should be to pick up/drop off children. We also do not know when we will be done for sure so it it best not to schedule anything until after 3 pm on cooking day.

11. The maximum number of cooking club members is eight. This ensures a safe and comfortable work environment.

12. Members may be required to do additional tasks such as setting up, grocery shopping, label making, washing towels, etc.  We will rotate the towel washing on a monthly basis so everyone will have an opportunity.

13. All checks will be due at each Cooking Club for the next month. For example, when we meet in September, everyone is required to bring their check for October. This is only fair to the coordinator who does the shopping and bills can range up to $800. This is a lot of money for one person to fork out (even if they get reimbursed) and I would not expect someone else to do that for me.  If you are not at cooking club, it is your responsibility to get your check to the coordinator (mail, etc).  Failure to do so may result in a replacement.

14. If you cannot be there on cooking day, please designate someone to put your meals away or to pick up meals. It is extremely helpful if you are gone, to send someone (friend, family member, spouse) to pick up the meals when they are done. This helps to make sure all the meals are there and they get put away. The coordinator can send a text to the person designated to pick up meals.  You can also ask another member to be in charge of your meals if you are not there.

15.  All members will leave Cooking Club at the same time to ensure that all clean-up duties have been done.

16. A donation to the church will be made each cooking month. We will also provide a ministry meal or two if time and budget allows.  If you must miss, you are still required to give a donation.

17. As a member of the Domestic Divas, I agree to follow these rules.________________________

We learn by doing, and there's no way around it. There is no stand-in for standing in your own kitchen, a trial by fire, literally. You can buy it in a box; you can watch someone else make it for you on TV. But there's no replacement for what happens when we make something with our own hands, directed by our own senses, motivated by our own love for the people we're serving.
