The City-Wide Collective Kitchens program provides Collective Kitchens and related programs (slow cooker kitchen, etc.) in locations throughout the city. These programs are small groups of people who get together on a regular basis to plan and cook nutritious meals for their families in a supportive environment.  Participants share ideas and recipes. They learn and improve basic cooking and life skills, which include planning, shopping, adjusting recipe quantities, determining nutritional choices, and preparing meals for themselves and their families. For some participants, it’s an opportunity to practice and improve their spoken and written English. By cooking together sharing food and time, money is saved as well as developing social support.
