Start or Sponsor a Community Kitchen
Be a leader in promoting healthy cooking
Good things happen when people gather to cook for themselves, and for each other. They make new friends. They expand what they know about nutrition. They eat better.
Learning basic kitchen skills helps people provide for themselves while saving money. They develop the spirit of teamwork, because the dishes that each community kitchen makes are divided among its members at the end of each kitchen session – everyone goes home with the feeling of a job well done, and with well-made food for that evening or days to come. (or longer still, when dishes can be frozen.).
