Warm meals, warmer hearts

"Kate's Kitchen is a second home for people going through the breast cancer battle. It is a safe place where we can share our stories with others who generally care and understand because they are going through the same experience. We learn, we eat, and we share a fun filled dinner together." - Cherie, Kate's Kitchen Participant

Kate’s Kitchen is a unique community kitchen for people going through or having finished breast cancer treatment. Over the past 14 years, this free-of-charge support group has offered folks a comfortable place to come together to learn nourishing recipes and cooking skills. Many participants are drawn to Kate’s Kitchen for the 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. Participants share tasks to create the dishes together, then sit down and share the meal as a group. Throughout, casual discussions around breast cancer experiences flow easily, tips are shared and friendships forged.

Join us each month for Kate’s Kitchen – NOW ONLINE! Virtual gatherings are 1hour in length and normally take place on the last Monday of the month around 4:30pm EST (email us to confirm). Always free, always welcoming and always delicious. Registrants receive the recipes ahead of time so you can cook along if you choose!
