About Community Kitchen

Loving Spoonful’s Community Kitchens is designed to get people together around good food. Working with adults, families, youth, and children, we offer cooking workshops where we make and share easy, healthy and affordable meals. Through hands-on learning and discussions of food topics, access as we aim to build knowledge, skills, and confidence, enabling participants to make healthy and informed food choices in the kitchen and beyond. Our programs are also a place where people socialize, building community and friendships around food. We also send attendees home with good food, healthy recipes, spices, and/or cookware depending on the program.  That sets them up for cooking and sharing with neighbours, family and friends.
