We are excited to be part of the Mission community and have carefully considered ways to give back to the residents who have so warmly welcomed us. As a cooking school, our strength is teaching people about food. Cooking is a life skill that was once passed down through generations; much of that heritage has been lost in our modern lives. We intend to help change that, starting with teaching young people how to cook. Drawing on our passion for working with kids in the kitchen, we have focused our efforts on teaching Mission youth to prepare food confidently while having fun.
The Civic Kitchen is partnering with educational institutions in the Mission to provide kids and their families with hands-on cooking experiences. We are currently working with Mission High School students, as well as the participants and families of Aim High
. We have our ears open and would love to hear from community members and neighbors about further opportunities to serve middle-schoolers, teens and young adults in the Mission. Please contact us with your ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org
