Collective Kitchens – City-Wide
September 13, 2021 - June 30, 2022
The City-Wide Collective Kitchens program provides Collective Kitchens and related programs in locations throughout the city. These programs consist of 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, literacy, numeracy and life skills, which include planning, shopping, adjusting recipe quantities, determining nutritional choices, and preparing meals for themselves and their families. By cooking together, participants will increase skills while developing social support.
Kitchens operate based upon learners’ needs, so they are offered days, evenings and weekends. Some sites run year-round.
