I translated this as ‘She volunteered to cook.’ Another solution would be ‘She offered to cook.’ I think the current translation is unnatural and it reminds me of cannibalism.

I agree. The phrase "offered herself" also has sexual connotations. It sounds like she will just about do anything to be able to cook!

Did the donner party take a detour into the amazon or something?
