Kate’s Kitchen is a FoodShare community kitchen for women going through or having finished breast cancer treatment. This unique support group offers survivors a comfortable place to come together to learn health-supporting recipes and cooking skills. Many women are drawn to Kate’s Kitchen for the pro-active and health promoting emotional support offered in a non-traditional format.

Participants meet once a month with a holistic nutritionist/chef and community facilitator, herself a breast cancer survivor. All classes are opportunities for hands-on food preparation of simple, delicious, and nutritious recipes inspired by diverse cultural traditions. Women break up into groups to create the dishes together, then sit down and share the meal as a group. Throughout, casual discussions regarding breast cancer survivorship flow easily, tips are shared and friendships forged.

Want to enter a healing space with fellow women? Interested in support information and health skills?

Join Kate’s Kitchen every last Monday of each month at 6pm in FoodShare’s kitchen. Please wear comfortable non-slip shoes and bring your appetite!
