Educate, inform and support members of our regional community to create a healthy, local and sustainable food culture.

Our food system niche: CCK partners with organizations in our community to provide classes for the general public, including youth programs, on nutritious cooking, using fresh, local ingredients. We provide classroom and real-world education to consumers and food-business entrepreneurs to encourage use of locally grown and healthy ingredients.

We envision communities where enthusiasm for local food helps people, the environment and the economy thrive.

Healthy on the Budget – Food Coaching:
Chelsea Community Kitchen is partnering with Faith in Action to promote healthy eating habits at the Chelsea food pantry. On April 11th and April 25th from 3-6 pm, Food Coach Yael Dolev (who is also a CCK Board member) will hold individual coaching sessions with food pantry customers and people from the community who have questions about cooking and eating healthy while on a tight budget. On each of these Wednesdays, Yael will also offer some recipes that will be created out of the items available at the party and a bite to taste. Drop in anytime between 3:00 and 6:00 pm at FIA to get cooking and storage tips, recipe ideas, and information on preparing meals that are quick and affordable. Yael is looking forward to meeting you. Contact FIA for more details or if you have any questions.

Board meetings held every other month on the second Monday, 6-8 pm, 128 Park St.  Next meeting is May 14th. Volunteers welcome to attend.
