Kitchen Classes

A variety of community cooking and food literacy classes are available through The Kitchen at Second Harvest. These sessions emphasize preparation of scratch cooked, whole food, seasonal and affordable foods aimed at lasting dietary changes. 

The Kitchen is a place where people come together to get excited about cooking, develop skills to be more confident in the kitchen and become more knowledgeable about the foods we eat. Our goal is to help our cooks build healthy habits and make better food choices that improve their nutrition while reducing the incidence of diet-related chronic illness.

Cooking for a Cause

Healthy Food. Every Person. Every Day. This is Second Harvest’s vision, and to make this a reality, we invite you to partner in a creative, local way to bring community members together to impact hunger. There are kids, families, and seniors in our community struggling with hunger every day and we believe that’s a problem worth solving. You can help by hosting a party in The Kitchen! We’ve got several ways to customize these parties to fit your guest list. For more info click HERE
