Kitchen Commons is a local nonprofit working to build a network of community kitchens. Community kitchens are places where neighbors of all ages and backgrounds come together to make and share meals, learn from one another about cooking and preserving the harvest, and nurture small food business.
These spaces promote food justice by making it affordable and practical to cook healthy foods for low-income food entrepreneurs and neighbors.
Kitchen Commons is hosting an Empanada Making Class & Fundraiser! Learn how to make empanadas and help support the development of community kitchens in Portland. $25-$35 sliding scale registration for the class. Live music by Tito Amaya and fun for all ages at the Cooking up Change party in the afternoon.
