Since 2009, Heat of the Kitchen has helped hundreds of youth realize their amazing value through active, professional practice.

By cooking, eating and serving together, we connect to the essence of work and our positive selves.

Best of all, the skills we build in this way are important skills – to us and to the world – and they last long after the dishes are done.

Our impact since August 2020:

  • 560+ meals made to date by students for their families through our deliveries and weekly virtual cooking class.
  • Beginning November 15, deliveries to Ida B. Wells families of fresh produce, eggs and our chef-made meal kits, supplying over 250 meals per week.  Thank you to Catalyst Kitchens for key funding on this project!
