We do this by bringing people together in a common kitchen and prepare large amounts of food to share. In a Community Kitchen (CK), everyone gets involved in the cooking, and cleaning, and we all share the food that is made. Some kitchens cook for the purpose of taking ready-to-eat meals home, while other kitchens cook for the purpose of enjoying a community meal together. In addition to leaving a CK with food or a belly full, you gain cooking skills, fresh ideas, nutrition awareness, and perhaps best of all, new friends.
To create opportunities for people to cook together; building community strength through food and lasting skills for self empowerment.
Equality- we honor that each person has the need to eat and the right to quality food.
Cooperation- Everyone participates in a community kitchen, whether they lead a recipe, wash the dishes, or help watch the kids.
Sharing Knowledge, skills, and intuitive wisdom around food and nourishment. We are also able to stretch our dollar much further when we pool our resources together and buy in bulk quantities.
Empowerment We all become more powerful when we have the knowledge to take charge of our life through informed choices, support, and access.
