 Guiding Principals

  • A community kitchen is any place where people gather to cook, eat and share food together
  • Scratch cooking, simple recipes easily translatable to home cooking
  • Participants are involved in meal planning and preparation
  • Provide opportunity for leadership among participants
  • Incorporate cooking skills and nutrition information in experiential learning environment
  • Wherever possible source local, seasonal and sustainably produced food
  • Meals built around seasonal produce
  • Proper food safety


Tilth Alliance's cooking and nutrition program began when Community Kitchens Northwest became a Tilth Alliance program in 2011. It started in 2007 as an all-volunteer group excited to cook and share food with our communities. Our model is inspired from by Fresh Choice Kitchens in Vancouver BC, as well as The Stop-In in Toronto.
