UPGRADE COMMUNITY TEACHING KITCHEN AT THE ASCENSION ST VINCENT YMCA
The Upgrade Community Teaching Kitchen aims to cultivate the health of our community through education and the celebration of diverse foods and beverages, with a mission of enriching people’s lives by teaching them to prepare their own foods and beverages. This kitchen provides the space for community partners to share their culinary skills, educate on health and nutrition, and empower those to come together and share a meal.
Class offerings will be hosted primarily in the Upgrade Community Teaching Kitchen at the Ascension St Vincent YMCA. Classes strive to incorporate ingredients sourced through a buy-local first approach, provide in depth explanations of ingredients and techniques, involve each student in a hands-on capacity and, most importantly, provide ample time to enjoy food, beverage, and fellowship.
