The Collective Kitchen is aimed at teaching and sharing traditional Indigenous and western cuisine methods in a hands-on environment. Many traditions are typically passed on orally, so the Collective Kitchen will incorporate both verbal and written aspects into the program. Participants will have the chance to learn new cooking skills through recipes, expand on their current skills, and socialize with others in the program in a healthy and productive manner. Foundational life skills such as communication, problem-solving, decision making, and creative thinking will be taught within the kitchen with the goal of this transferring into everyday life.
