Community Kitchens

There are many definitions of a “community kitchen” in Canada. In the Guysborough Antigonish Strait Health Authority we generally mean that a group of people is gathering to cook healthy food together. This usually involves eating the food at the end of the session and learning some healthy eating information.

Who is it for?

Community Kitchens are available to community members who are interested in learning more about cooking and nutrition. Some community kitchens are held with existing community groups and therefore are not advertised. However, if you want to organize a community kitchen you can contact one of the Public Health Nutritionists. You will need a minimum of 10 participants to set up a community kitchen. The cost of the community kitchen is free to participants.

When and where is the program offered?

Public Health Nutritionists offer community kitchens in various communities within GASHA. The time and location of these programs vary. If you want to set up a community kitchen in your community contact a Public Health Nutritionist.

Does the program require a referral?

No
