Kate’s Kitchen was a unique community kitchen for people going through or having finished breast cancer treatment. Over the past 15 years, this free-of-charge support group offered folks a comfortable place to come together to learn nourishing recipes and cooking skills. Many participants were drawn to Kate’s Kitchen for the health-promoting emotional support offered in a non-traditional format.
Participants met once a month with a holistic nutritionist/chef and community facilitator, herself a breast cancer survivor. All classes were opportunities for hands-on food preparation of simple, delicious, and nutritious recipes inspired by diverse cultural traditions. Participants shared tasks to create the dishes together, then sat down and shared the meal as a group. Throughout, casual discussions around breast cancer experiences flowed easily, tips were shared and friendships forged.
Unfortunately, Kate’s Kitchen is no longer available. We thank you for your support and participation over the past 15 years.
