A Kitchen with Your Needs in Mind:

The Providence Milwaukie Community Teaching Kitchen is not your ordinary kitchen. It's a dynamic space designed to empower you and your community to make healthier food choices and master essential culinary skills. Here's what makes it so special:

Education Tailored for You: At the teaching kitchen, education is the cornerstone. It offers a diverse range of cooking classes and workshops. Whether you're a seasoned chef or just starting out, you'll find classes on meal planning, budget-friendly cooking, and healthy eating. The kitchen is open to all regardless of culinary experience.

Culinary Skills for All: The teaching kitchen's programs aren't limited by age. Classes are offered for children, families, and adults, ensuring that everyone in the community can learn how to prepare nutritious meals.

Unlock the Power of Nutrition: Understanding the nutritional value of foods is crucial, and the teaching kitchen is committed to making it accessible. You'll learn how to make informed choices about your diet and promote healthier eating habits for you and your loved ones. Meet with a registered dietitian for an individual visit or group culinary class.

Inclusivity Matters: The teaching kitchen welcomes people from all backgrounds including those facing financial challenges. Classes and programs provide you with practical cooking skills even on a tight budget. An onsite healthy food pantry, “family market” is offered for those in need of additional food resources.

Where Community Blossoms: Beyond education, the teaching kitchen is a community hub. It's where you can gather with your neighbors to share meals, stories, and experiences, building connections and a sense of belonging.

The Impact Beyond the Kitchen:

The influence of the Community Teaching Kitchen extends beyond its walls. It contributes to a healthier way of life. Here are some of the extra benefits:

Improved Health: As you learn to cook nutritious meals, you learn to take charge of your health and reduce your risk for diet-related health issues such as obesity and heart disease.
