Collective Kitchens

Individuals come together in a centralized kitchen to prepare a nutritious meal, which they can then share with friends on-site and have plenty left over to take home. Programming includes educational sessions around meal planning, wholesome and nutritious grocery shopping, budgeting and other healthy lifestyle practices.

Why it Matters: 

Often seniors and adults with disabilities become isolated, which is detrimental to their mental and physical health. These programs mix social interaction with nutritious meals, to feed bodies and minds.
