Community Development

We are grateful for funding from United Way, City of Kitchener, City of Waterloo, and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.
With their support we deliver local food security projects with partners such as A Better Tent City, Food Not Bombs, and the African Women's Alliance of Waterloo Region.


Cooking Workshops & Demonstrations

We engage with local food experts (e.g. chefs, home cooks, food entrepreneurs) to facilitate cooking events using local ingredients to share food skills and culture while enhancing social cohesion.
The Community Kitchen has partnered with Rockway Community Centre and St. John's Anglican Church to present workshops.

Community Dinners

Utilizing volunteers and members, we coordinate community meals in partnership with other social agencies and groups at community centres, churches and neighbourhood locations. Community meals encourage interaction, cultural understanding and social well-being.
Kitchen Co-op KW has provided dinners in partnership with St. John's Anglican Church, Emmanuel United Church and Supportive Housing of Waterloo.

Skills Development and Mentorship

Future offer:  we will work with food industry experts such as chefs, marketers, food producers and food safety professionals to provide support to emerging food entrepreneurs to build food industry knowledge and skills.
We hope to support food entrepreneurs to access commercial kitchen space within Waterloo Region.
