While I’m in the television studio or kitchen the majority of the time cooking up recipes, I have fun going out into the community to enjoy some “Food for Thought.” A variety of those stories can be watched if you click on "Food for Thought Videos" under "The Community Whirl'd."
I also help raise money for area Colorado charities. If you are with an organization that is interested in raising money with the help of "Meals in a Rush," please send an E-mail to Tawnya@MealsInARush.com. After each taping of "Meals in a Rush" the food leftover is fed to Denver's Homeless.
Feeding Denver's Homeless "Meals in a Rush"
September 2010 I was a part of a fun presentation during "Kid's Challenge" at a local Colorado Elementary School. I spoke with the children about proper communication to be a leader and what a leader will face at times at work, school and in the community.
"Meals in a Rush" has been a silent auction item to help support the Ronald McDonald House, Mt. Evans Hospice Center and Project Safeguard. The highest bidder gets the chance to come and cook with me during Channel 9's Colorado & Company.

SWEET! MEALS IN A RUSH MAKES THE PAPER
After the 2009 Mt. Evans Hospice Center Fundraiser "Meals in a Rush" was featured in The Denver Post's "Inside Line" on Sunday, March 15 by Joanne Davidson. She wrote, "Another hotly contested item was the chance to serve as Tawnya Rush's cooking assistant for an episode of 9News' Colorado & Co. Mt. Evans board member Steve Browne bought it for his daughter, aspiring chef Kristin May."
I really got things cookin' at the 3rd Annual Celebrity Chili Cook-Off Competition that was put on by the Denver Press Club to raise money for the Women's Bean Project. You can see me with the host of Channel 9's Colorado & Company, Denise Plante. I stirred together a delicious "Vegetable Chili." You can find that recipe under "Here's What's Cooking" and then click on Main Course Meals.
I also mixed, flipped and served CultureCakes at Ten Thousand Villages in Denver (Dec. 2008). Each bag of "CultureCakes" sold went to help feed someone who is hungry.
