The kitchen is at the heart of FoodShare, everyday we lovingly prepare and serve fresh, healthy, affordable, culturally diverse food to our family of staff, volunteers and guests. Our Good Food Café models a universal healthy, affordable, school cafeteria and proves that students will eat Good Healthy Food. Our cooking programs provide hands-on capacity building through hundreds of workshops and dozens of health-based Community Kitchens across the city. We prepare nutritious home-made sustainable food through our award winning Field to Table Catering, prepare nutrient-dense Power Soups delivered by community agencies to the homeless and under-housed, provide employment experience and life skills training through our Focus on Food youth internship program, and work extensively with various partners and entrepreneurs in our Teaching Kitchen sharing resources and skills.
