Chelsea Community Kitchen 2016 Annual Giving


Highlights from 2016

Thank You Friends and Supporters!

With your help we’re educating the community about healthy food and cooking, supporting locally grown food, and helping small food businesses succeed.

Giving Tuesday and CCK

Tuesday November 29 has been designated Giving Tuesday and we know you’ve received requests from many organizations.  Chelsea Community Kitchen has used your past support to educate our community about healthy food and cooking, to support locally grown food, and to help small food businesses succeed.  Consider making a donation to help us grow.

Every donation helps. Here are examples of what your contribution could do:

  • $25 can provide a scholarship for one day of Kids Cooking Camp
  • $100 can pay for kitchen costs of one of our community events, like Dinner and a Movie at Robin Hills Farm
  • $150 can pay for a scholarship for the Summer Chef’s Club
  • $200 can pay for an instructor for a ServSafe class
  • Give by donating your time:  taking notes and circulating them, writing press releases, organizing our communication efforts, planning fundraising events, and providing support for food businesses are ways you can help

Send donations to Chelsea Community Kitchen at 305 S. Main St, Suite 100, Chelsea, MI 48118 using this DonationForm2016


We’re reaching more people every year, and we couldn’t have done it without you.

Just a few highlights:

  • Our fifth year of Kids Cooking Camp taught elementary school kids how to cook and enjoy fresh, healthy food. These classes cultivate healthy habits and lifelong skills that can prevent the bad habits that led to childhood obesity and type II diabetes.
  • In 2016 we offered our first Summer Chefs Club for older youth grades 7-9. Participants visited a farm to learn where their food comes from and prepared a meal for special guests.
  • 2016 was also our fist year of the After School Kids Cooking Program during the winter
  • We’ve offered dozens of other community classes including healthy cooking on a budget; fresh, local and healthy cooking for seniors; vegan cooking; gluten-free cooking; preparing seasonal produce; and so much more.
  • In 2016 we offered two ServSafe classes for food professionals, resulting in 17 ServSafe certified students.
  • Last year we partnered with Faith in Action and the Farmers Market to provide 3 “Healthy on a Budget” cooking classes.

We’re ready to continue these programs in 2017 and offer more classes for elementary and middle school children, focusing on our youth programs.

But we need your help to do it. Please use the included response form to make a donation to Chelsea Community Kitchen so that healthy, local food continues to thrive in our community!

Thank you!
